The work of Polish-born Roman Klonek is largely influenced by Eastern European cartoon styles. In the 1990's he studied Graphic Arts in Düsseldorf, where he discovered a passion for woodcut printing.
The prints he creates are populated by a wide range of whimsical creatures, mostly half animal/half human, and often presented in awkward or hair-raising situations. Klonek succeeds in creating worlds featuring a bizarre balancing act between folklore and popular culture; the reduced forms of the woodcuts he produces are reminiscent of the first days of comics and cartoons. He founded the Gallery Revolver in 2001, bought a printing press and started a never-ending range of woodcut printings. Roman Klonek works together with friends in a studio in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Kemistry Gallery will be exhibiting a range of Klonek's woodcuts created especially for the exhibition, which will be available for purchase exclusively from the gallery or the webshop.
The show opens 16th April and will run untill 30 May 2009
