Biography & Artist Statement


Contemporary Art Curator Magazine is delighted to award you with the Power of Creativity I Art Prize
This is the highest mark of Creative Excellence and recognition of outstanding achievement in innovation and creativity.
Power of Creativity I Art Prize celebrates the most creative artists and ideas, which have the power to change the world! Art can make the world felt, and this feeling may spur thinking engagement and even action. Most of us know the feeling of being moved by a work of art. When we are touched, we move. Art helps people get to know and understand something with their minds and feel it emotionally and physically. Art can help people overcome the numbing effect of today’s information overload by motivating them to put their thoughts into action. Art plays a vital role in creating social change; art tells a story that can alter and positively influence people’s futures and opinions.
Contemporary Art Curator Magazine is proud to present you the Collector’s Vision International Art Award, recognising and encouraging your outstanding achievements and potential. Contemporary Art Curator Magazine presents the Collector’s Vision International Art award to you for achieving a body of work of major cultural significance. It is a highly anticipated Award presented to the most outstanding and talented artists working in the art world now.

Pav Szymanski MA Fine Art Digital with distinction (UAL), BPhil (Ed) (EXON), Cert Ed (EXON)

Painter & Lecturer

Biography:

I am a fine art painter and video artist with 30 years of experience.   My current research project is based on creating visual responses to my observations of people, who are suspended in the vacuum of hypnotic repetition.  I have travelled the world interviewing and recording individuals, who genuinely struggle with their existence in the context of their survival.  I have gathered substantial primary sources and evidence from destinations across the globe. Perhaps, the most significant research findings were from Haiti and Myanmar and resulted in the production of the most spectacular paintings.  They have inspired me to develop new and innovative ways of working and experimenting with image making, which are appropriate to the subject.  They combine the best of traditional achievements and the power of contemporary thinking and deep reflection.

I work full time as a programme coordinator for Art & Design at a large institution offering a broad range of Further and Higher Education qualifications.  I am also an external examiner for the University of The Arts, London and Academic Qualifications Alliance.

I have been awarded the International Vision Collector’s Award and the Power of Creativity Art Prize by the Contemporary Art Curator Magazine.

Artist Statement:

Through my projects I feel that I discover my inner fears, longings and re-evaluate my uncertainties. My work seems to be an attempt to explore and question by metaphorical presentation my response to the hidden truths of the world. The essence of the value of these works is in their inherent meaning and an atmosphere, which manifests itself in the dusk of the space portrayed, thus the light may appear, where the hue of colour fulfils clarity and sounds with harmonious melody.

DANIJEL ŽEŽELJ: LIGHT BLACK / October 7 – November 20, 2022
The artist Danijel Žeželj has transformed the space of the MSU BLACK BOX into an environment that, to some extent, refers to The Head of the Deer, his latest comic book that evokes the permeations, connections and correlations between nature and society. It is about an immersive environment, a kind of embodied drawing. Žeželj is primarily considered a storyteller who uses images instead of words.
