Igor Dobrowolski

b. 1987 Poland




Born in Jelenia Góra, Poland, Dobrowolski has long drawn from the aesthetics of his childhood hometown for inspiration.  Delicately shaded large-scale paintings in monochrome hues are often layered with overlapping body parts or dream-like imagery. Inspired by Dalí and Escher as a child, Dobrowolski spent hours indoors sketching; drawing from his family’s collection of art books which had a profound influence on his practice.


Through continuous attention and action on social issues and humanitarianism, the artist Dobrowolski has developed a new series of works in 2020, using metal media and mirror treatment, carving on metal surfaces, and using mixed media and polyester which creates three-dimensional crystals. The sorrow and suffering in the past are sublimated into beautiful crystals. Through the characteristics of the metal and special treatment, the new series artwork is like the sun, shining brightly. The work is no longer just sorrow, but with a strong hope and power. “It is very important for me to include, in all of my works a particle of hope, because I believe it’s going to be ‘better.’ Even after the greatest tragedies.”

Born in Jelenia Góra, Poland, Dobrowolski has long drawn from the aesthetics of his childhood hometown for inspiration.  Delicately shaded large-scale paintings in monochrome hues are often layered with overlapping body parts or dream-like imagery. Inspired by Dalí and Escher as a child, Dobrowolski spent hours indoors sketching; drawing from his family’s collection of art books which had a profound influence on his practice.


“At that time, I was reading about what was going on in the world and I was struck by the trauma, the pain, the suffering – I wanted to do something. It was my way of expressing myself and I felt it in my heart. I was just painting and sleeping. Painting and sleeping. Trying to make a difference.”


Dobrowolski has been concerned about social issues and humanitarianism for a long time. His creative forms include oil painting, photography, and mixed media creation. Motivated by the desire to convey true stories, Dobrowolski launched a series of street art campaigns in different countries, using his art to juxtapose Western consumerism with human suffering. Intent to arouse people's attention to social issues. In 2017, the artist crossover with H&M and ZARA. Billboards, which combining photographic artworks evoked the detrimental impact of fast fashion, try to guide the audience to reflect on, value, reduce harm and help who or which directly and indirectly affect under the world of the prosperous. In 2017, Igor Berlin hosted another "Christmas in Yemen" event, through the combination of contrasting the world, to show the long neglected reality. “I just want to give a voice to the voiceless. Because for many, the world is a merciless thing.”
