Karol Bak was born in 1961 in Kolo, Poland. From 1984 to 1989 he studied at the State School of Fine Arts (now ASP) in Poznan, at the Graphic Art Department.

He completed his studies with two prized diplomas, at prof. Tadeusz Jackowski’s graphic studio, and at prof. Jaroslaw Kozlowski’s drawing studio. After his graduation in 1989, Bak dealt with copperplate engraving and drawing. For the next few years he was busy with designing and took part in his artistic travels. In the second half of the 90s he started to paint on canvas, and from 2000 he has been engaged in it professionally. Bak paints using oil on canvas and often works on a few paintings at the same time.

As you will see below, the main theme of his paintings is a women’s beauty. Much of his works were inspired by mythology. Karol’s works combine the following subject cycles as: “Sailing-ship”, “Dialogs”, “Cocoons”, “Aureoles”, “Four elements”, “Judyta and Salome”. While focusing on easel painting and drawing, he currently lives and works in Poznan, Poland. Bak’s paintings are currently displayed on the following exhibitions:

  • Stewart Gallery in Gdansk.
  • Gallery of SD.
  • WZ Gallery in Warsaw.
  • Go Gallery – Amsterdam, Netherlands.
  • Rainbird Fine Art Gallery – London, U.K.
  • Polart – Krefeld, Huts, Germany.
  • The Icon Gallery Virginia, USA.

We hope you will enjoy his unique artistic style of traditional art!
