Bolesławiec artistic community – Krzysztof Brzuzan

Krzysztof Brzuzan was born and raised in Bolesławiec. He first came into contact with real art in primary school through Mieczysław Żołądź, a pupil of Antoni Kenar. When encouraged by the artist to make some sculpture, he brought the finished work, causing enthusiasm and disbelief. He continued his artistic education at the First Secondary School in Bolesławiec under the tutelage of Jolanta Ajlikow-Czarnecka. He passed the entrance exam for the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków on the first attempt thanks to a highly acclaimed set of works in wood. He obtained his diploma in the sculpture studio of Professor Marian Konieczny.

After graduation he moved to Rzeszów, where in 1980 he took up a job as an art teacher at the State Secondary School of Fine Arts. At first he taught metalwork and then, for many years, woodcarving (according to an original didactic programme). In 1980, he also won a competition for the reconstruction of a monument to Adam Mickiewicz in Rzeszów, which was important for his further artistic career. He has been an active participant in the cultural life of the city from the very beginning and has repeatedly won prizes in the local competition “Painting, Graphics, Drawing, Sculpture of the Year”. He is well known to the citizens of Rzeszów for his bronze sculptures located in the city space, including the statue of a juvenile delinquent aiming a slingshot at a street lamp.

In his works, he uses stone, wood, metal and ceramics, often combining these materials. Monumental and sacred sculpture occupies an important place in his work. In his art, he refers to many cultural tropes, from the great classics to folk artists. However, regardless of the form or material used, he always tries to say something about man and his condition in the contemporary world.
