15 Jan Exhibition opening: Mateusz Skutnik “Blacky”
Friday 13th February 2015 @Centrala
6pm-8pm, exhibition open until March 17
We are proud to present a collection of illustrations of Mateusz Skutnik,one of the most prominent comic artist in Eastern Europe. The exhibition will show the story of Blacky – a middle-aged guy living in a big city, growing older and being a parent. It is a funny and thought-provoking collection of bittersweet observations.
Blacky might seem to be just a regular guy but there is something very special about the way he looks at the world. Seen through his eyes, daily routines and things that tend to go unnoticed in a busy everyday life serve as triggers for reflection. Read it, but be warned – you will never look at a mug of cold coffee in the same way again.
