Pablo TOMEK

Painting

230 x 200 cm

Acrylic on canvas 

Pablo Tomek spends time developing his skills in his workshop, where he intertwines the legacy of graffiti and abstract expressionist painting. At the same time, he uses blue-collar techniques and aesthetics (remixing whiting, creating rough blockwork sculptures with mortar in washed-out colours, appropriating Day-Glo marks left by architects or objects discarded in the street) to dig out a new language, often left unfinished, at the crossroads of the margins of painting and urban renovation, against a backdrop of institutionalisation and gentrification.
