Antoni Kowalski

"My work deals with the space between the material and spiritual world. I am looking for a perfect form to show through the metaphor the complexity and richness of the universe from the position of my existence. I am inspired by nature and everything that is important to me."

Tree of Life: Eden, 2015 - Oil on panel 70 x 206 cm
