‘I go to places, I see things I like and I just draw them,’ says Damon Kowarsky. The Melbourne based artist does not only have an established career but has also managed to travel the world extensively to fulfill his creative aspirations.
Damon Kowarsky studied printmaking at Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne and Glasgow School of Art, Sweden. Furthermore he took up Advanced Figure Drawing with Godwin Bradbeer at RMIT University, Melbourne,Victoria.
His work presents itself as a travel diary of sorts. The work is built upon the artist’s interest in the cartography or structures of cities and different sights within those communities. Kowarsky shows immense interest in capturing the culture, landmarks and streets of the places he visits, in a process that starts off as sketches from live observation that end up in the conception of full-fledged prints.
Kowarsky says, “We absorb so much of the world through our eyes. I wanted to be part of that conversation.”
The artist’s work has been displayed in the group show Origins at Khaas Art Gallery, Islamabad (2014).
