Jerzy Lisak

Jerzy Lisak, painter for “Loving Vincent”

We are so proud that Jerzy Lisak will be the co-teacher to Paulina Olowska. He was part of the team of painter-animators in the  fully painted feature film ‘Loving Vincent’.

I’m sure he will add his excellent expertise in painting technique to the class. In 2002 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. He is often inspired by the history of art – especially by Renaissance and Baroque painting, therefore his own paintings is stylised and shows hints of grotesque. Jerzy sees painting as the art of perfect craftsmanship and also as a mystery: in studying the visible world as it is – and then “translating” it in his own painterly language. When Lisak is still exploring the secrets of alchemy of painting, he looks for harmony and play of colours. What he loves is attending open-air exhibitions or practicing wall-painting.

Alchemistic painting

"For me, the International Summer Academy is a very special place. The intensive, creative and inspiring atmosphere in all our activities never ceases to fascinate me. Artists come to us – as teachers and students – from all over the world, taking advantage of this summer time-slot to concentrate exclusively on production, reflection and presentation, far removed from their everyday life. Disillusionment and re-enchantment, downfall and upswing – all this is possible; there emerge not only exceptional works of art, but also friendships and networks that often last a lifetime. The long-term project Global/Planetary Academy is at present my main objective. Its aim is to further establish the Summer Academy as a hotspot for global art, tackling relevant questions and strengthening worldwide connections. The project focuses on questions of how art can be learned and taught in the globalised world."
