Grzegorz Łoznikow (1987) is an artist from Poland, currently based in Reykjavik, Iceland. He has participated in festivals and international exhibitions, as well as being active in street art since 2008.
The triggering point of his career was an article about Matthew Barney who inspired him to connect to modern art and study Sculpture at The Academy of Fine Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland.
In 2010 Grzegorz participated in a scholarship at Tianjin Academy of Fine Art in China where the political system inspired him to focus on the concept of ideology and history in visual arts. Under that influence, he created murals and video art in Hutong districts. After returning to Poland he worked on the ‘German Olimpic, 1936’ cycle—a collage series that became his main project and was shown at f/stop, Westpol AIR Space, Leipzig (Germany), The Recontres d’Arles, Arles (France), Circulations Festival in Paris (France) and Lookout Gallery in Warsaw (Poland).
After moving to Reykjavik in 2016 his main focus shifted onto street art constructions created in public spaces from recycled materials, as well as original landscape interactions such as snow sculptures. It was precisely out of this dialogue with nature that the ‘Winterconstructions’ series was born—a long-term project for which Grzegorz received a special mention during the 2020 Arte Laguna Prize Art Exhibition in Venice, Italy.
