ARS AUREA ARS ANIMOSA

Jakub Jaszewski aims to create his own style in relief and digital printmaking by using fine detail, rich color and dream-like atmosphere. Art for him means to form another world which we can observe, so on his own he is researching mythology, psychology, informatics, and various literature.


His favourite technique is linocut used by him in artistic diploma series POST-APO (2012) awarded multiple times in Poland, or in RITES (2016) made during phD studies at Faculty of Fine Arts, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Poland). He also makes digital prints such as [CYBER] (2018) series awarded with Nagy Pál Prize in The 5th Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland (Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania) or GRAND SILICA - a tribute to polish chemists - Jan Czochralski. In pursuit for top quality mediums and methods he makes various small graphic forms collected under the MINILAB and [MICRO-CYBER] names.
