Searching for an Artistic Identity: Trying to Define your Graphic Language
Damian Idzikowski

27.09.17 29.09.17

At the September 2017 Open Studio we presented the silkscreen artworks from the artist-in-residency Damian Idzikowzki (Poland) together with Piotr Skowron (Poland), guest artists David Pimentel Segura (Perú, artist in residence from the program RAP, Buenos Aires) and artist-in-residency Rachel Sommer (USA).


I’ve been working on a project titled Searching for an Artistic Identity: Trying to Define your Graphic Language. The main goal when working on this topic was to create a graphic cycle using the printing methods by using different matrices. The challenges I tried to take were to combine classical artistic graphics with a graphic matrix and create multilayered visual objects. I developed my own way by enriching my own workshops and learning new solutions, using matrices and ready-made prints.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
