SWANSKI

  1. "FLYING BAZAAR TOUR" BERLIN
    Swanski’s Flying Bazaar Traveling Art Show is ready to begin rolling through Germany. In each stop, whether it be a skateboarding museum in Stuttgart or Box32 gallery in Berlin, Swanski will create new, one-of-a-kind “photo stands” (as well as various art actions and events like in-store live painting, pop-up stores, exhibitions, and outdoor murals). These "photo stands" are actually unique art pieces that allow the viewer to become part of the art show. Similar to the ones kids enjoy at zoos or costume parties, these “photo stands” apply the same process, putting the viewer’s head into a pre-cut hole in the work where a photo is taken, but that is where the similarity ends. Each face, each person alters the work in their own immutable way, adding to an ever-expanding collection of unique artistic creations. The people in the gallery are affected by the art and the art is influenced and changed by the people, creating a circle of infinite variety and unexpected results. The artist merely sets the stage; the gallery viewers must finish the artistic process. In this way, the viewers become part of the art, making for an interactive and revelatory experience. In this way, Swanski has created a singular artistic experiment, a case study that examines symbiosis, perception, and the complex relationship between artist, art, and observer.
    The tour is produced and supported by Turbokolor and Another Republic.

    As a warm-up to “Swanski’s Flying Bazaar” — the “Artist- / Label Tour” by Warsaw-based artist Pawel Kozlowski alias “Swanski” and his urban fashion label “Turbokolor” — we arranged a small test drive called the "SAAALE - TOUR". It started in Giessen at the GREENHILL SKATESHOP, with breakpoints in Cologne at the DOUBLEIGHT SHOP, Hamburg at the BACKSPIN SHOP and Bielefeld, too. Along the tour various art performances and events like in-store and outdoor live paintings had taken place.

SWANSKI
Born in 1980 in Warsaw, Poland, and reared in both the last days of the Soviet empire and the birth of the modern Polish nation,
Pawel Kozłowski turned to art at an early age. The need to escape the confusion and complexities of the time gave life to the artist within; Swanski, the nom de guerre he adopted around this time, was borne. Swanski works in diverse mediums such as graphic design, illustration, painting, animation, clothing design, and ink. Drawing influences from all corners of globe—from Hokusai to Durer to Raymond Pettibon to name but a few—his style is not easy to categorize or pigeonhole.
In 2001, he created Swanarts, an illustration, design, and art studio. Then, in 2007, he established Turbokolor, a clothing-and-design company inspired by art. He currently resides in Warsaw.
