born 1985, lives and works in Krakow (PL).

Studied graphic art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, where he received his doctorate under the mentorship of Professor Dariusz Vasiny. He holds an adjunct position at the Pedagogical University in Krakow. In his artworks, he creates sculptures, installation, animation, music and graphic illustration. Wojciech Ireneusz Sobczyk is an artist who's decidedly un-contemporary. His interests are focused on a broadly understood concept of humanism, while his artistic practice draws from traditional, oftentimes even archaic, techniques, topics and iconographies. Sobczyk reaches back to the fundamental questions on the nature of Mankind, the existence of Good and Evil, the essence of Beauty and Art. His isn't, however, a strictly elementary return to the ideas and craft of a Renaissance artist. Sobczyk's affinities amid the values of the humanities take on a characteristically material dimension. Through an obsessive manual dexterity and a passion for uncanny details, he builds his own moral corpus. Sobczyk's fetish with regard to ideas and matter come together in an immutable and sophisticated tangle, which translates into a nostalgic search for one's own spiritual formula.
