One of the most recognised Polish contemporary street artists, Michał Wręga, also known as Sepe, is easily distinguished by his style. It shows the influence of both his fine arts education and graffiti background, makinJoan Cornellag his pieces equally fit for rundown neighbourhoods and high-street galleries.
People are the main subject of Sepe’s art. Their faces, often grim, display a sense of pessimism and hopelessness. Other works, in a frenzy of colours and shapes, show disfigured and grotesque figures, reflecting on the many facets, the good and the bad, of human condition.
Born in 1982, the Warsaw-based street artist, painter, illustrator and graphic designer was a part of the graffiti movement years before he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź in 2009. Sepe started creating in 1996, evolving from graffiti, to the street art scene and finally combining painting and drawing on paper, canvas and urban spaces.
Wręga’s works are present on walls in Europe, Asia and America, but fine arts lovers also have a chance to see Sepe’s paintings and drawings at several exhibitions. The latest being titled “POWER PLAY”, which opened yesterday at the Colab Gallery in Weil Am Rhein, Germany.
