Spatial Compositions

Site Specific

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The posters were commissioned by Puro Hotels. I was one of the local artists who was asked to prepare artwork for their new hotel in Lodz. The task was to create locally inspired posters and I decided to draw inspiration from Katarzyna Kobro's Spatial Compositions, whose works are in the Art Museum across the street from the hotel.

How was the illustration used:
The large size illustrations were printed on 100% cotton-rag paper with archival pigment-based ink. They were released as signed and numbered limited edition prints (edition of 32) specifically for the Puro Lodz hotel designed by the London-based design studio SuperFutures. All the works are currently framed and displayed in the hotel.

How did you make this work:
The illustrations based on the sculptures by Katarzyna Kobro were drawn digitally and then printed on 100% cotton-rag paper with archival pigment-based inks.
