Robert Bubel

Robert Bubel, painter, born in 1968 in Zarki nr Czestochowa, Poland.

Robert studied Painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and graduated at prof. Z Grzybowski’s workshop in 1997. He now practises painting, drawing and related techniques.

In his works, Robert uses traditional means of visual expression established in the 20th century. He emphasises the meaning of gesture and expressive smear while studying the relationships between the performances commonly known as figurative and abstract. Robert persistently claims that every painting is abstract. His landscapes are painted with the same passion and emotional commitment as performances showing figures or abstract compositions. Robert often depicts people who are closest to him, whom he arranges like actors on a stage. For Robert, an emotional rapport with every topic is the condition sine qua non in every painting.

At present, 2018, Robert is working on series with the working titles: “Puzzle” and “My place on the Earth”.
