Karol Kochanowski received HOME‘s Granada Foundation Gallery Exhibition Award at the inaugural Manchester Open Awards in 2020 for his work Class.

Kochanowski’s paintings depict uncanny spaces, some of which are populated with strange forms. In places, we find organic shapes, animal parts or plant life; other elements are architectural, geometric or purely abstract. His influences come from many sources including the work of 20th-century Avant-garde artists and our everyday environments.

As an artist, he is interested in how we might draw imagery back from our subconscious and to what extent we can visualize or represent our unconscious thoughts. Perhaps as a result of this, the forms and spaces in his work are imbued with a sense of a deeper dimension; of something lurking beneath the surface.

Karol Kochanowski is a Polish artist and painter based in Manchester.
