Private Collection Houston Texas
Marek Tobolewski graduated from BA Fine Art Painting at Brighton College of Art in 1986.
Recipient of several awards notably from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation New York, Tobolewski’s work is held in private collections across the UK and USA as well as numerous corporate collections. Tobolewski’s works are held in several permanent public collections and have been commissioned both privately and corporately in the USA and UK, notably the 5 metre triptych 3LC SymM+R RBb for the Music Recital Hall foyer at the University of Nottingham.
Tobolewski’s practice deals with the formal process of abstraction in painting today.
