Emerging visual artist Damien Borowik will be exhibiting a selection of recent paintings and show the first series of his machine drawings for the first time at the Parallax Art Fair.
In Damien’s paintings, abstract shapes become interrelated in a combination of gestures. Each mark becomes an essential part of the structural balance, and creates a visual dialogue between flow and tension. The artist combines shapes, colours and textures to achieve a purely aesthetical harmony, where the artwork can speak for itself.
Additionally, the first series of his machine drawing will be shown exclusively at the fair for the first time. The set of artworks is the result of a creative and iterative process between the artist and the machine he created. Programming and mechanics are dictated by the creative input, giving each drawing their unique qualities.
Damien is passionate about the art of making. Being a ‘Plasticien’ in a figurative sense, he strives to use and create tools to shape traditional and digitalmediums, revealing the inner workings of an artefact. Whether in his paintings or installations, digital or analogue, each stroke, action or decision made cannot be hidden, and inform the aesthetics of the resulting art piece.
Damien Borowik is a French artist who has been living in London since 1998. He studied applied arts and graphic design in France (Foundation at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art) and also in the United Kingdom (BA at Central Saint Martins). He has recently completed an MA in Computational Arts at Goldsmiths and was invited by Samsung Electronics to take part in a unique art residency program in Seoul, South Korea, and collaborate with the famous photographer Jono Lee. Damien is currently based in South East London at ASC studios Bond House, New Cross Gate.
Parallax Art Fair presents over 200 makers around the globe showcasing painting, drawing, scripture, jewellery, textiles and craft at wholesale studio price. It is an “art” fair between “artists” and “visitors”.
