Peter Barelkowski

Peter A. Barelkowski, born in Poland to a business family always rebelled against their established codes.

He started experimenting in painting in the 70’s and in 1975 he established his first studio.

His art education began with an MA from the University of Poznan and continued at Goldsmith College (Poznan, Poland), Ontario College of Art in Toronto (1985 – 1988) and less formally – in London, England ( Camden Arts Centre ) and Norway, where he was street performing for tourists during the late 70’s.

His work has been about human conditions like isolation and alienation. Creating a paradox between his joyful colours and darker subject matter, his paintings attempt to play with our ideas around sadness. As a form of subtle escapism, the figures in his paintings are depicted in a one dimensional, cartoonish style – with almost grotesque undertones.

His paintings are in private collections in Europe, USA and Canada. His studio is currently located in Toronto, Ontario (Canada).
