Roman Klonek, born in Kattowitz/Poland, is an internationally known representative of contemporary print art. He has a spot for old fashioned cartoons, especially east European styles.
In the 90s, he studied Arts in Duesseldorf and discovered a passion for woodcut printing. Bizarre creatures, metamorphoses of humans and animals, meet and show themselves in a pop surreal environment. Striking are typographic elements of Cyrillic and Asian characters. Roman Klonek combines propaganda, folk and pop.
From 2001 to 2008, Klonek participated in the gallery „Galerie Revolver“ in Düsseldorf. He attended the festival „Pictoplasma“ several times. Besides his artistic work he is a guest professor at Folkwang University of the arts in Essen and lives and works in Düsseldorf.
