The artist

Wojciech Marchlewski, ethnographer, member of Polish Artists‘ Union“Polish Applied Arts“.

His artistic activity began with engravings using the traditional techniques of etching and reflection. Continuing work on the traditional forms of folk art of the nineteenth century, in the 80’s he began the study of painting on glass.

After many years developed his own technique of painting, referring to the formulas and techniques of glass workshop painting of nineteenth century from Northern Poland.

He participated in the workshop classes of Stanisław Tworzydło, where he perfected his skills in water painting using traditional Chinese painting techniques.

In recent years, medieval Byzantine painting has fascinated him. He paints using the models of the early Byzantine art preserved in Serbia and Macedonia.

He deals also with a sculpture in wood and clay.

Looking at his achievements in the last 35 years it can be said that he is a versatile artist.

He creates in the studio located in the building of the old railway station.
