Piotr Lutyński

Painter and creator of objects and installations, often working with live music and living animals

Piotr Lutyński

Piotr Lutyński was born in Tychy, Poland in 1962. He studied at the Silesian University in Cieszyn and lives and works in Krakow, Poland.

His work may be seen as a compilation, a completion of opposites. Painting, the operating language of geometric abstraction is often juxtaposed with the severe rawness of the pure organic matter (raw, rotten boards, honeycomb, wax).

Installations, often operating under sterile conditions, introduce live animals (chickens, goats, ornamental birds, sheep, horses, fish), creating favorable environments for them to stay. Sometimes, building the space carries an autonomous object-matter of living nature.
