“Between Dream and the Portrait”, by Polish artist, Maciej Cieśla
This colourful artwork is a very characteristic work by this talented, emerging Polish artist Maciej Cieśla. As with most of his paintings, it is inspired by nature, folklore, and social subjects. The world he creates in his paintings contain characters borrowed from folklore and fantasy.
Maciej Cieśla on “Between Dream and the Portrait”: “This work is inspired by an archetype of a portrait and how primitive people may have seen their self-reflection in relation to their subconsciousness.”
