Part of Krzysztof's recent body of work, playfully crossing the lines of children's fairytales and surrealism. Here, he depicts a boy enacting a fantasy of being king of his stuffed toys. He sits somewhat self-consciously, dwarfed by his large chair, and possibly plotted against by his loyal subjects.
Krzysztof Iwin is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. His body of work is largely figurative with elements of surrealism. Showing frozen fragments of a reality that does not exist, Krzysztof attempts to capture the menacing, sometimes macabre beauty of the search for meaning.
