Ryszard Kalamarz


“The painter in a characteristic way combines reality, fantasy and purely abstract elements, creating space for the recipient’s own story. In his works, we find both a contemporary feature and the atmosphere of the paintings of old masters.”

Artist, painter, recognized Polish portraitist. A graduate of the Faculty of Graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.

Out of his fascination with the world of ballet and theater at the end of the 1980s, he creates a series of pictures depicting dancers. His favorite motif are characters belonging to this world. The artist places them preferably in interiors reminiscent of the mysterious backstage of the theater or fairy-tale gardens, which are the background for human beauty, as well as real emotions and passions.

Ryszard Kalamarz’s works have been presented at individual and collective exhibitions in galleries in Poland and abroad. From the beginning of the 1980s, the artist lives and works in Rybnik.
