Art from around the world and around the corner


Michael Krajewski

Michael Krajewski This self-taught artist has shown in numerous galleries, collaborated on large commissioned pieces for museums, painted live at art events and been the subject of magazine and newspaper profiles. His style has been called neo-expressionist and compared to Jean-Michel Basquiat's though Krajewski is less interested in defining, more interested in producing. He works in mixed media. Most recently, he's had solo shows at the HoFP Gallery, Frame of Mind and Anastasia & Friends in Columbia, SC. He's participated in a two- man show at the Waterfront Gallery in Charleston and in group shows at 701 Whaley and the Tapp's Art Center in Columbia. In 2011, he taught a summer session at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts. He has also painted murals at the Upstate Children's Museum in Greenville, SC (collaborating with Justice Littlejohn) and for the Columbia Museum of Art (alongside painter Cedric Umoja). He has created set pieces for the Columbia City Ballet and Trustus Theater and painted on the flesh of live models at the What's Love art event in Columbia. In 2012, he painted a mural in reverse, on a window at the Tapp's Art Center; people attending the First Thursday gallery crawl watched the mural reveal itself, while a video camera positioned inside the window provided a live feed of him at work. Krajewski has been the subject of stories in The State newspaper, the Free Times, Jasper Magazine, Undefined and skirt! magazine. He is represented by the HoFP Gallery in Columbia, SC.
