Rafal Topolewski


Born 1983 in Poland. Lives and works in Lisbon.

Rafal Topolewski previously studied Architecture at Wroclaw University of Technology and Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Banality, triviality, drawing and architecture form the core interests in Rafal’s painting practice. The paintings are made intuitively (however hermetically defined) and then become subject to a period of consideration and combination, inside and outside frame of work. Within the overall body of work, a variety of approaches to abstraction and figuration are employed to both coherent and dissonant effect.
