About Marek Kozniewski

I never went to art school.
I was born in London of refugee parents from Poland. When I was six years old my grandmother gave me a paintbrush and some oil paints and asked me to paint a picture and since then I have never stopped painting.

In Mexico in 1975 I studied under a Spanish- Mexican painter, Virgilio Ruiz Fernández, the techniques of the old masters using egg tempera. Also intermittently between 1975 and 1986, I studied drawing and oil painting techniques under maestro Juan Blanco Rodriguez (1922-1988) a Mexican painter from San Luis Potosi. Since coming to South Korea I have studied under Kang Chan Mo, a South Korean painter, the techniques of oriental natural color on Korean natural paper.

Education

After college I went to see the world.
