Jakub Gliński

Born in Rzeszów, Poland, is a painter, performer and audiovisual artist creating a total and radical oeuvre. His inspiration and domain is destruction, decay and civilisational waste. His performances may be seen as theatrical acts, often reaching the extreme and leaving the audience in a state of deep shock. He usually creates his paintings and installations intuitively, using the expression-rich aesthetics of “Trash and Error”. A grey-blue palette with the use of an airbrush, intermingling fields of colour that resemble scratched walls, visual quotations drawn from murals, pop culture, tattoos or children’s drawings have become the artist’s clearly recognisable style. His artistic activities in many fields are a rapid, often subconscious reactions to the signals he “receives” from his surroundings. Jakub Gliński is also a creator of projects: SUPER AIDS, Galeria Śmierć Frajerom, Jesus Is A Noise Commander, Jakub Gliński & PUR- GIST, KURF, Too Empty To Poo, BOOM FOR GABBA and Igenn Xew. He lives and works in Warsaw.
