Michal Lukasiewicz – was born in 1974 in Pulawy (Poland). Since 1995 he has lived and worked in Antwerp, Belgium for over twenty years. He is a self-taught painter and, as he admits, the work of the Benelux countries has had a strong influence on his artistic style.
Working primarily in acrylic, his works are almost monochrome, if not for the patches of shades like off-white, ochre, sienna, pink, grays, and neon oranges and yellows. The paint appears to be one with the form and not a separate entity. Naturally our eye is drawn to different parts of the form when color is added so it is interesting to see them with and without paint adorning the body. Recently he has been experimenting with color, in the form of seemingly random patches, which gives his work, which is set in the classical tradition, a somewhat modern touch.
