Life laced with intrigue: Jarek Puczel from Olsztyn, Poland

Firstly, Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow-Up is every designer’s dream, it’s one of our all time favorite movies…and we’re entirely enamored with the iridescent bubble! Society bristles with enigmas which look hard to solve. Jarek Puczel’s images are snapshots of life, undoubtedly laced with intrigue and drama. With a hushed tone they bring out the moments of tension in our everyday lives. Colors in his compositions are reduced yet thoughtful, creating an outstanding graphical clarity. As in love, we delight in that degree of youthful curiosity and are fascinated by life’s undulating layers of mystery.

Lovers (1) is featured on the cover of The Jezabels’ new album The Brink. Lovers (1) and Lovers (2) are best sellers on our site! At first look the compositions seem calm and apparently simple but the more you look at them the more intimate and riveting it gets — the more caught up you are in the moment.

Jarek received his MA from the University of Warsaw in 1990. His paintings have been exhibited across Europe and the United States.
