Tomasz Kulka's (1979) diverse artistic practice spans across painting, sculpture, street art, video, and ceramics. He explores the repressed, unwanted, and fundamentally human aspects of existence. His recent work examines fauna and flora through the lens of the Anthropocene, portraying humanity as self-destructive. 

Kulka's art uniquely translates personal experiences into universal narratives, often using miniature scale. His native Wolbrom, a declining town between Krakow and Katowice, inspires reflections on social and urban degradation. He depicts a hopeless world where routine stifles rebellion against a reality of apathy. Incorporating quasi-religious motifs, Kulka responds to the art world's attempt at seriousness in frivolous times. Kulka is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. Originally from Wolbrom, he currently lives and works in Wrocław, Poland. 

For the triptych "Game over" he received the Grand Prix at the 45th Bielska Jesień Painting Biennale, he is also a laureate of the 2nd prize at the 44th Bielska Jesień Painting Biennale and a two-time scholarship holder of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
