David Borawski

me-clevelandDavid Borawski lives and works in Hartford, Connecticut, and received his BFA from the Hartford Art School of the University of Hartford.

A multi-media installation artist, his work is comprised of sculpture, video, drawing and digital imagery. Conceptually driven, the work reflects upon pop culture, radical politics, art history and the dark alleys of society while also incorporating personal experiences.

Each installation combines multiple elements to present visual and mental signs, “clues” that evoke sub/conscious nostalgia as a means to provoke layers of possibilities. The focus is on iconic societal events that have influenced major shifts in our collective consciousness, suggesting connections while exposing them as uncanny precursors to present-day realities.

Recent solo installations include the New Britain Museum of American Art, Real Art Ways, ArtWalk at the Hartford Public Library and Elon University in North Carolina, and has been included in group exhibitions at Artspace New Haven, work-detroit in Michigan and the 7th Water Tower Arts Festival, Sofia, Bulgaria.

In September of 2016, new work will be included in a group exhibition at Foksal Gallery in Warsaw as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the historic gallery.
