Bartosz Kosowski is an illustrator, a graduate of English philology at the University of Wrocław and the Faculty of Graphics of the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź. Currently, he runs the one-man Blackbirds Illustration studio, where he creates mainly portraits and press illustrations. At the end of 2014, Kosowski’s illustrations were awarded three gold medals presented by American graphic design experts.
Kosowski is one of those artists who is more recognized and acknowledged abroad than in his own country. The graphic designer and English philologist have been cooperating for years with prestigious periodicals from all over the world, including The New Yorker, The New Republic and Perspective.
Yet, Kosowski has so far never been awarded in Poland, nor has he made it into any Polish illustration exhibitions. Let’s hope that his American successes will finally raise interest in his works here at home.
