"When I paint I imagine myself in this unreal world, which I am very close to. I think that deep inside me I am little boy who fondly believes in magic and Santa Claus." Learn more about Sokol's work and inspirations through an interview conducted by Pedro Boaventura.
Leszek’s characters celebrate a state of immutable and transcendental grace, sometimes they look directly into our eyes and soul, probably, due to some sort of effect or contagion, they make us lighter to the point where we feel ourselves floating some feet above the ground.
Inside the Studio
In Leszek Sokol’s art we step into a fantastic tale which takes us back to a distant dream, located somewhere in our childhood. Just like in any enchanted realm, the angelic figures drag us into an anti-gravitational universe, in which everything is magically driven upwards.
"In the era of overwhelming rudeness, vulgarity and lack of any type of moral brakes, people are looking for something that will make them calm and experience something positive." We invite you to enjoy a short video that travels through a few of Leszek's astonishing artworks.
