Michal Maka

Michal MAKA was born in 1989 in Kalisz ,Poland. Graduate of painting and graphics at the faculty of art pedagogical in Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, artistic and pedagogical department in Kalisz. I am inspired by the city spirit, people, architecture, post-industrial, abandoned places, which are many in cities, I want to change their “ugliness” into something interesting. I try to blend in with their natural character. My latest project “Error” is a painting attempt related to the digital, analog error occurring in the era of digitizing the image. The works are aimed at reproducing various visual processes that are generated by incorrect data recording.

Additional Artist Information

Born in 1989 in Kalisz ,Poland. Graduate of painting and graphics at the faculty of art pedagogical in Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, artistic and pedagogical department in Kalisz.

I deal with painting, printmaking, photography, street art, painting the outside. Using techniques of hand-cut stencils applied with spray paint.

The paintings are important for me to reflections on the human condition and the modern world. The need to protest against double standards, sensationalism, media manipulation – stems from my relationship to the world – I’m a pacifist.

Artwork in cities: Kalisz, Poznań, Wrocław, Warszawa, Gdańsk (PL), Berlin, Roma, London, Boston, Worcester (USA), New York, Providence (USA), Bünde (GER).
