Maurycy Gomulicki

b. 1969, lives and works in Warsaw (PL) and Mexico City (MX).

Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Universitat de Barcelona, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan and Centro Multimedia del Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City.

Artist, designer, photographer, collector and anthropologist of contemporary popular culture. Gomulicki’s works span photography, objects, installations, videos and animation, as well as graphic design and book illustration. In recent years, he has also created a number of interventions in public space. Gomulicki is a hedonist who is deeply devoted to the Culture of Pleasure. Through its propagation he has evolved a unique approach rooted in fetishism, pornography and eroticism. Intense colours are an essential component of his work, meaningful as much for their vibrancy as their socio-cultural aspects. His work relates to the issue of how pop culture is manifested in visual space, blurring the boundaries between high and low culture.

Maurycy Gomulicki has published three photography albums: Fúnebre (with Jeronimo Hagerman), Editorial Diamantina, 2006; W-wa, Bęc Zmiana Foundation, 2007; Minimal Fetish, CCA Ujazdowski Castle/LETO, 2010. His installations have also appeared in public space in Warsaw, Wrocław, Brussels, Lublin, Gdynia, Kraków, Tarnów, Elbląg and Poznań.
