“The Cellist 9” (2019), a colourful oil painting by Maciej Cieśla
This colourful artwork is a very characteristic work by Maciej Cieśla, a talented emerging artist from Poland. 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, such as fauns and water nymphs.
Cieśla on “The Cellist 9”: “Forms of the female body and music are an important subject for my art. These compositions refer to not only connections between the female forms and the instrument but also the delicacy of the cello.”
