Ignacy Nowodworski (1980)

Ignacy Nowodworski was born in Gdańsk. He is a sculptor and an assistant in the Department of Sculpture of the Institute of Art at the University of Opole, also an expert in education at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole. Graduate of the Art Institute of the University of Opole, honours degree in 2005. He obtained his PhD degree in 2018 at the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław.

His creative quest began with a series of found objects, textures and surfaces and changed over time. The abandoned interest in “ready-made objects” left in him a taste for contrasts and compilation of various materials. For his sculptures, he uses wood, metal and rubber, often combining the three materials. Much of his work involves bent wires and welded openwork structures. Structurality also discloses itself on the surface of his sculptures. His work interweaves human and animal motifs, thus reflecting the coexistence of two different worlds and the relationship between them. The fascination with material and texture can also be seen in the lost-foam casting of cast iron.

His works can be found in the collection of „Zachęta” and in private collections in Poland, Germny, Netherlands and USA.

Ignacy is the author of award statuettes: MECENAS for the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole; OPOLSKIE LAMY for the Polish Independent Film Festival; BRIDGE OF DIALOGUE for the House for Polish-German Cooperation.
