Igor Moritz was born in Poland in 1996. At a young age, he and his family were forced to relocate to London, but when he was old enough, he returned to his home, Lubin, to pursue his studies in fine arts. Moritz’s artistic energy flows out him so intensely; constantly creating with an almost Egon Schieleian-like passion, Moritz’s muse is the world around him.
Those in his most intimate circles are the ones he portrays, giving the viewer a view into Moritz’s world. His paintings and drawing flirt with mimesis while breaking all rules of perspective, proportion and realism. He morphs and composes the perspective, space and figures in a way, in order to create visual tension.
Color is something that is always at the forefront of his works, as Moritz sees color to be a way to tap into the viewer’s visual palette. The effect are artworks that are palpable, emotional, and visceral.
