Konrad Wyrebek

I work with photography, painting, installation and digital images, and I intend to start working with video and sculpture soon. The starting point for my work is usually photographs. I always have a camera on me so while sometimes I draw on fashion imagery more often its pictures of my everyday life – the friends and objects I come across. All the time I’m looking for images, especially online. I observe and analyse pictures from Google images, blogs, Facebook and YouTube as well as from magazines, papers, billboards, advertising campaigns, video clips and pop culture in general. When I start to work with these pictures the main aim is to make the usual look unusual or to give it a different meaning. I like to incorporate materials and fabrics that often trigger strong associations in people. Frequently I use gaffer tape, bin-bags, hair, salt, sugar, glossy paint, latex, synthetic poly-rubber and plexi-glass. These materials combine with use of pixellation or blurring or zooming in to transform the image or create a new surface. Ultimately I want the work to be enigmatic and even mystic – always open to interpretation in this age where science is replacing religion and it is preferred that things have only one defining meaning and explanation.


I am a young, London based artist (born in Czech Republic, grew up in Poland) working across various mediums - primarily oil and acrylic painting and photography, but also screen and mono printing and drawing. In addition to this I have produced 3D installation and performance based works.
