Nicolas Kuligowski’s work has a double edge. One notices the vibrancy of the paintings, the colourful and attractive patchworks, the efficient brushstrokes. Their flamboyancy is quite seductive. Yet on closer inspection, the artwork becomes more striking; the paintings are solely about objects - not a still life but one object solely taking over the whole space of the canvas. The object takes centre stage.
Beneath its vivid aspect, Nicolas Kuligowski work interrogates the power of representation and the impact of the image.
Nicolas Kuligowski is Parisian artist and a Graduate from Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He was nominated for the First Prize Painting at the prestigious Salon de Mai (Paris) in 2006.
