Invisible Cities Emerge in the Most Unexpected Places

Marcin Kolpanowicz creates imaginative cities that exist in swirling clouds overhead. The Invisible Cities is a series of oil paintings and pastels that features bustling towns emerging from the whirling dust of a tornado or the puffs of smoke from a train. The compositions, filled with soft yellow, brown, and golden hues, feature the surreal imagination of the Polish artist coming to life on the canvas.

Kolpanowicz provides his viewers with a foundation for imagination, where airplanes, and trains, and bird's wings become a means for escape into a world of dreams. The hazy colors distort reality just enough so that reality and fiction become a blur of exciting adventure, and as viewers gaze at the peaceful scenes they will begin to wonder, if they could just reach that city in the sky, where their next journey might take them.
