BA (Hons) Fine Art
Norwich-based multimedia artist Marek Jeczalik has had an obsession with learning how things work since early childhood. He utilises his knowledge gleaned from then until the present day to bring his ideas and passions to life. His outputs are very wide-ranging, from micro sculptures and automatons, to paintings and short films.
His works centre around the themes of childhood, nostalgia and memories, explored through any number of lenses. The pieces are specially designed to make the audience connect or reflect upon their own past, or the pasts of ancestors or even of those in the future.
His abstract works ask the viewer to glean their own personal recollections/connections by resonating with a specific element within each piece. Marek believes his most successful artworks leave the viewer with a sense of delight, whether this stems simply from the humour of a work, intrigue as to how an effect is achieved, or the happiness gained from the awakening of a dormant memory.
