Janusz Mirosław Dembowski

1953

He is an artist with very wide interests, he is a sculptor, painter, draftsman, as well as a poet. Dembowski began his adventure with art in 1969 at the Antoni Kenar State Secondary School of Fine Arts in Zakopane. Between 1974-1980 he studied at PWSSP (currently the Academy of Fine Arts) in Gdańsk. Since 1988, he has been running an open studio at Mariacka Street in Gdańsk. He is a very active artist, taking part in numerous open air and artistic meetings. Throughout the entire period of his work he has created many monumental sculptural forms. He has exhibited his works in Poland and abroad, including in the Netherlands and France. His awards included the Award of the Marshal of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship (2018), Medal of the Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship (2018). The artist does not call his works sculptures, but simply “stones”. He composes them from fragments of several hundred year old oaks and other natural materials. His favorite material is stone and black oak.

He says about himself: “I am an archeologist – I bring to the surface the forgotten, seemingly past, past, but very current – ubiquitous. To extract – to save – to pass on to others – this is the goal of the archaeologist-artist.”
