Jakub Tytykalo

In my paintings, I try to be as authentic as possible. I don’t really choose the subjects, I rather let them develop along the process. I think that the pool of images in the subconscious plane of the mind is endless and there is always something that surprises me. I tend to stay on the edge of the descriptive, provoking the audience’s imagination to translate it into its own language. That also connects us on the non-verbal level of understanding, making space for freedom of interpretation. There are, however, sources of inspiration that I have to mention: Gustav Meyrink’s books, in which I’ve found the essence of understanding what the nature of matter is, some of Rudolf Steiner’s texts and, of course, Surrealist and Metaphysical painters. I combine and transmute my personal life with that imagery in an attempt to create an artwork that can stand alone, hoping that it would speak to a viewer even a hundred years from today.
