Belgian artist Marcin Owczarek, born in Poland in 1985, began his journey with photography at The College of Photography in Wroclaw at age 20. His fascination with new technologies' impact on humans and urban spaces laid the groundwork for his surrealistic digital collages. He received an honorable mention for his graduation piece, “Brave New World,” an exploration of a dystopian future.
Owczarek's work delves into themes of mechanization, standardization, and the threat to wildlife, skillfully using animals as metaphors to present an introspective view of humanity and its impact on the environment. Each piece, a digital tableau of thousands of photographs, intertwines elements of photography, painting, and traditional collage, creating a universe rich in symbolism and introspection.
His pieces challenge the viewer, questioning our relationship with our shared world. A prime example, "In Search of Utopia," underlines Owczarek's yearning for a world that respects all life and the environment, becoming a call to action against climate change and environmental destruction. Owczarek's art is not just a form of expression but a plea for a more conscious future.
