Jakub Julian Ziółkowski

born 1980 in Zamość, Poland,
lives and works in Cracow, Poland.

Jakub Julian Ziółkowski is painter. In his works, he creates painterly representations of the inner world. Imagination, the sub-consciousness and the ineffable play a central role in his art.

The painting Bestiary, presented in last year’s Art Biennale in Venice as part of the main exhibition Palazzo Enciclopedico, contains Ziółkowski’s typical range of motifs – grotesquely distorted fragments of human bodies, fantastical monsters and landscapes that bring to mind the famous triptych by Hieronymus Bosch,  Garden of Earthly Delights.
