Rafał Żarski (b. 1989) – visual artist employing interdisciplinarity in his art practice. In 2016 he received his MFA from the Photomedia Studio at the Academy of Arts in Szczecin. Since 2016 he has co-created an experimental travel agency – the Museum Tour Office – together with curator Tomek Pawłowski. In 2013 he was awarded the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage prize for students of art schools for outstanding creative achievements.
Rafał is not keen on working under the pressure of time; nonetheless, he does everything in his power. He is interested in the everyday, banality, and the monotony of surrounding reality. His works are analytical, supported by deep research and, at the same time, intuitive attempts to understand the world.
His residence is supported by the partnership with the Białymstok Arsenał Gallery. https://galeria-arsenal.pl/
