These staggering watercolor art pieces you see before you are something only Tytus Brzozowski could conceive. Tytus is an architect and aquarellist from Poland. He adopts architectural elements from the present and the past to reimagine 19th century Warsaw Architecture, from his own perspective. His vision of this beautiful city is very bright and prosperous in his paintings. Some images contain surreal, fantasy elements such as floating rooms. Others, on the other hand consist of dream like scenes of entire buildings resting in the air on thin pillars suggesting how fragile they really are. Warsaw was almost totally destroyed during World War II. Poland’s problematic history is very well known. I believe Tytus’s work depicts perfectly what this marvelous city is, was, and what it could become.
My main inspiration is a city and it’s mood. I’m focused on my hometown Warsaw and it’s complicated history. This is why in my paintings one can find the mixture of present and past.
Watercolor is a technique of architects. It’s very usefull in creating city scapes, it gives my lots of flexibility.
What to expect after this amazing Warsaw Architecture inspired Paintings?
After seeing these astonishing pieces of art one can only have deeper appreciation for the Architecture, and its importance in human history. What we often take for granted while casually strolling down the street might be a great part of our past. These cold giants that stand tall looking at us from above are silent witnesses of our revolutions, wars, and also progress.
When I asked Tytus Brzozowski about his future plans for his art, I got this inspiring answer: “The project I’m focused on now is a picture book for kids – the book with the story told only by the pictures. It will be published in spring 2017.” And, I must say, I can’t wait to see it!
