About Łukasz Cendrowski

I recently graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland. I chose to study sculpture because modern sculpture is crucial to my artistic interests and development.

In my work I refer to a vast tradition of minimalistic methods, most of which were developed in the 20th century. I intend to transfer these techniques to the present through my work. I explore the possibilities of how to use these techniques in modern day, to examine the result and explore the artistic potential. At the same time I try to push the limitations of the materials and the techniques to move further with my own work using these traditions as a foundation.

It is the form of the pieces which focuses the audience's attention. Since the sculpture has no reference to any other form there is no disconnect or attempts to understand it's meaning other than to appreciate it's shape. In this way the form of the piece itself becomes the meaning of the sculpture

I began participating in artistic shows and events in 2010. Since then I have presented my work in many exhibitions in Poland and other countries. In September 2012 I exhibited my sculptures at the ZS Art Gallery in Vienna. In the future I would like to create work that would be displayed to the public in areas around the city, creating a dialogue between architecture, space and people.
