Krzysztof Żyngiel about him self…
“Abandon all your beliefs, Leave the world you have lived in so far behind this door, You are entering a world of magic you have only ever dreamt of…”
Visionary “Apocalyptic cities” often take a form of anthropomorphic bodies that are neither bulky nor clumsy, they become slender, but do not lose their rigidity. The monumental megalopolis in which I depict figures, their hands and faces amalgamated with architecture may be called a painted melic poem. By using rich symbolism, thoughts and Latin sentences complementing the narrative, I am able to express myself and share my visions with the audience. I often paint cities that have various architectural solutions. I combine buildings with defensive walls (to protect us against evil), city gates (hiding some secrets); I present old residential houses. Most of the time they are lifeless and departed. Defensive areas, palaces, manors and sacral buildings that used to witness glamour and allure, now are asleep and buried.
Burning sulfur and fire that rained out of heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah can be compared to today’s fires, fights and wars all over the globe. Bombing, terrorist attacks, deadly acts of terror, missiles and explosives hurting people like swarms of bees – we are constantly being destroyed by the aggression. I am upset and threatened by a vision of the cities that I get in my head like a snapshot from a camera. It is hard to remove this view from my mind. When I see the scenes of death and extermination which I illustrate using lively or monochromatic colors, I am horrified. I know it’s a gift I have to live with. We must remember that wherever there is evil, there you will also find the good. Therefore, there is hope, a prayer and a pursuit of a better tomorrow. The good can always be uncovered, yet it requires deeper understanding and insight into one’s own mind and soul.
“ Pulhrum in nature jacket,
et solum mundum visum
et comprehensiom revelare
id potest ”
