Dominik Zarówny ( b. 1991 ) is a Polish-born artist and film director who explores the interconnected forces of place, power and personality. Zarówny draws on the principles of surrealism to create nightmarish yet energetic interpretations of the characters, dynamics and surroundings that he encounters. He works primarily with oils, pastels, and acrylics, but often experiments with materials found in his local area – a warehouse district in Tottenham, North London. His latest collection focuses on the present and catastrophic decline of the West, and the sense of alienation and dislocation experienced by young people as they witness the fracturing of their own culture, and try to make sense of their place in a fast-changing world.
