Maurycy Gomulicki

Maurycy Gomulicki, born in 1969 in Warsaw, resides and creates in both Warsaw and Mexico City. A distinguished graduate of the Faculty of Graphic Arts at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, he further honed his skills at the Universitat de Barcelona, the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, and the Centro Multimedia at the Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico. Gomulicki, a multifaceted artist, designer, photographer, collector, and anthropologist of popular culture, has made significant contributions to public spaces with his unique creations. He is a self-proclaimed hedonist, ardently advocating for a “Culture of Pleasure”. Through his work, he initiates compelling conversations around eroticism, pornography, and fetishism, with the use of vibrant colours to explore their vital potential and socio-cultural significance. His oeuvre seamlessly integrates elements of popular culture, blurring the lines between the traditional classifications of low and high culture. His artistry is recognised and celebrated in prestigious collections such as the National Museum in Warsaw, Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, and the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil in Mexico.
