Filmed and edited by Rowan Pybus of Makhulu Productions, The Art of Andrzej Urbanski is a short film that profiles Cape Town based, Polish artist Andrzej Urbanski. The video is a showcase of the artist in studio turning a bare canvas into a piece of graffiti-inspired artwork bursting with colour, but constructed with systematic lines and shapes.
Narrated by Andrzej himself, the film gives the viewer a peak into his life as he speaks of some of the things that inspire him and his ongoing effort to create handmade art that looks computer-generated. He also shares insights into how he relates his painting to MMA fighting and speaks about the balance between the two disciplines.
The filmmaker and the artist are close friends and have been supporting each other’s careers for almost four years. Rowan says, “This video is a culmination of that time together. A time often spent discussing the power of art and the effect that colour and shape has on us all.”
Andrzej will be exhibiting his work at Salon91 from 18 March to 18 April.
