“Lovers (1)” oil painting by Jarek Puczel.
Graphic design: studio a&a, Montreal
“This image can be seen as the embodiment of the idea of yin-yang in love.” – Jarek Puczel
“Lovers (1) leaves open the imagination. Its simple but unique texture intrigues, seduces and invites to dream, to explore ” – studio a&a, Montréal.
Born in Ketrzyn, Poland in 1965, Jarek Puczel received his MA from the University of Warsaw (Faculty of Art Pedagogy) in 1990. He approaches his work with the idea that life is a movie or a game of illusion and the world is a playground where different realities play with one another. more info
