For those who are seeking new places, experiences and heights. For art connoisseurs and party animals. Jacek Łydżba’s exhibition in Soho Factory – the trendiest destination in Warsaw’s Praga – is an invitation to enter an energetic orbit of painting. Łydżba seduces his audience with bold colours and a repertoire of his favourite motifs. This is going to be a gathering of gorgeous female cyclists, tamed wolves and cult aeroplanes. For one evening that huge post-industrial hall will be filled with paintings and Jacek’s male and female fans. The guests will also have a chance to enjoy beer and live music.
There are two major effects of Jacek Łydżba’s visit to the Print Room in the University of Warsaw Library. Firstly, there is a series of paintings inspired by the graphic art of Albrecht Dürer, and secondly, the artist’s exhibition on the premises of the University of Warsaw Library. Against the background of grey, concrete walls we will see Łydżba’s interpretations of Dürer’s motifs: plants, angels, landscapes. A bold artistic gesture and the sheer joy of colour.
