Darek Grabus (born in 1973, Gdynia, Poland) works with photography, painting, ceramics and graphic design. He studied at the Faculty of Graphics of Gdańsk Art Academy and is a graduate of Sopot School of Photography.
The works of Grabus are distant and picture solitude, melancholy, and alienation of inhabitants of big cities. Scenes from the border of waking and sleeping where the persons disappear in urban landscapes match perfectly paintings presenting geometric forms. In his works, one can see inspiration by realism, surrealism, abstraction and even pop art. Influence of American painter Edward Hopper can also be seen.
