Born in 1969, Jacek Malinowski is an experienced Polish painter who spends his time between Gdansk, Warsaw, and Tuscany, Italy. His primary focus is the Tuscan landscapes that he paints on annual summer strips. Adding abstract elements to realistic subjects, Jacek communicates emotion, warmth, and a sense of discovery. His paintings, dedicated to the South Mediterranean landscape, are saturated with vivid colour palettes and evoke a sense of endless scale.
Jacek Malinowski’s Early Career and Style
Jacek is a graduate of the High School of Fine Arts, Julian Fałat in Bielsko-Biala. His paintings celebrate the Tuscan countryside and, rooted in awe of the Italian region, are abstracted and highly expressive. Jacek attempts to find a symbol for the Tuscan landscape - a synonym for their beauty and grandeur - rather than merely replicate it. Tapping into the kinetics of colour, Jacek charges his imagery with vibrant colour and contrast, marrying rich purples with blues, blacks and greens, and warm earthy tones. In this way, his paintings become a dynamic confrontation with static planes.
