Roman Klonek (b. 1969 in Poland, based in Düsseldorf) uses the traditional hand-crafted technique of woodblock printing to create comics-like pop compositions which blend the aesthetics of vintage comics, propaganda posters, Russian and Japanese folklore, as well as catch words in Cyrillic and Japanese scripts.
Klonek has exhibited in Germany, Los Angeles, London, Paris among other cities, and most recently at the Liège Engraving Triennial. His works are part of the permanent collection of the Colección SOLO in Madrid. His first monograph, "Woodcut Vibes", was published in 2021 and is available at Urban Spree.
Roman Klonek held two solo shows with the gallery: "Cut the Crap" in 2018 and his second solo show "Foreign Affairs" will be held from 12.11.2021 to 18.12.2021 in Berlin.
