Meet Igor Dobrowolski

Igor Dobrowolski is a talented artist born in Jelenia Góra (Deer Mountain), Poland who depicts social and political issues in his paintings and murals. In his work Igor explores topics such as death, depression, war and children, the problems of the poor and homeless and the lack of empathy.
His art should make us appreciate our life, our time, value all the little ordinary moments and make us more empathetic.

Igor kindly answered my questions not only regarding his work.
Enjoy the interview!

When did you start painting/doing street art?
My adventure with paintings began in 2014. 

How did your work develop and how would you describe your style?
My style? I don’t think I’m the right person to judge it.
I try to make my work about poor people, and I’m not talking only about financial issues, give them some voice. Also regarding the destruction of the environment. I just wanted to show true stories…to express appreciation of life, sometimes lack of sense in life, how time passes so quickly. Everything above is very important to me.

I believe that empathy is one of the most important but much-underrated features. Perhaps it is even a virtue.
I do not deceive myself by the salvation of the world, but maybe my work or work of other people, not necessarily in the art world, will help fix something. I hope that my work is a little part of something bigger, something good.

For me, the attempt to conclude a part of hope in all work is very important, because I really believe it’s going to be “better” even after the greatest tragedies, perhaps for life or maybe death. I do not want to sound too lofty, but I just somehow feel I do not know how to put it into better words.

It Must Be The Abs

Stencil piece by Polish artist Igor Dobrowolski titled “Sick Future” found at the Berlin Wall in Germany. This work is a series of stencils relating to social media. Dobrowolski likes to depict the bad sides of humans and draw attention to social and political issues.

“There are many topics that I try to move in my work, or maybe the topics move me, such as death, depression, war, problems of the poor and homeless, addiction, narcissism, lack of empathy.”
– Igor Dobrowolski

This is how I found the piece two days ago. And below is a better shot right after it was finished.
