Waldemar Kolbusz lives and works in Perth and has been painting full-time and exhibiting regularly for over two decades both nationally and internationally, and is the founder and director of KolbuszSpace.
Kolbusz paints in two streams which interrelate. His figurative works test the differences between an idealised human experience and actual experience – the increasingly blurred overlap between the two in our contemporary lives.
Do we only experience how we think we’re supposed to experience? Am I sold feelings, later imagined to be my own?
His expressionistic works explore this same fine edge: they allude to a kind of perfection, but then to something else.
Kolbusz’ paintings have been commissioned for major projects and are in numerous collections nationally and internationally.
