Bogumil Ksiazek (b.1974 in Cracow) was educated at the Cracow’s Academy of Fine Arts (1995-2000). 2003-2009 lived and worked in Florence. 2009- 2015 lives and works in Cracow, by 2009 employed on Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow.

His works have been purchased by the Frissiras Museum in Athen, and appear in private collections.

For Bogumil Ksiazek, the practice of painting is a subject in itself. Guided by the principles of uncertainty and eclecticism, he follows a thread, carefully feeling his way along it, and illuminating it with the tools he has to hand – fingers, brushes, computer,collage – all with consummate ease. Abstraction he treats as gesture, or as geometry to be superimposed, combined, or conflated with a figurative register, this process creating marks, smudges and stains. This fusion of abstract with figurative is the surrealistic method he employs in his search. His palette, with its seemingly random twists and turns, follows its own path; at times intense, at times reduced to a subdued monochrome.
