Nicolas Kuligowski’s work has a double edge.

At first acquaintance, you notice the vibrancy of the paintings, the colourful and attractive patchworks, the efficient brushstrokes.  His paintings immediately seduce by their flamboyant aspect.


But as you study the work more carefully, it suddenly hits you; the paintings are solely about objects - NOT a still life but ONE object solely taking over the WHOLE space of the canvas.

There is nothing else. No human presence. The object takes centre stage.

The diving board seems silently still with no diver or water, the cargo appears like a ghost with no apparent sea, the helmet seems defenceless without its owner and the chair appears to be useless on its own.

Beneath its vivid aspect, Nicolas Kuligowski work interrogates the power of representation and the impact of the image.


Nicolas Kuligowski is a Graduate from Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

He was nominated for the First Prize Painting at the prestigious SALON DE MAI (Paris) in 2006

It is his first solo exhibition in London.
