Polish born artist Swavek Sienkiewicz studied drawing and painting at the University of Slask and photography at Sheridan College (Oakville). Currently based in Toronto, Swavek is a successful commercial and fine art photographer winning many awards for design and photography.
Sienkiewicz explores the visual possibilities of the photographic medium. He prefers to photograph ordinary images in his surroundings with an interest in lens optical relations; composing with light, shapes, shadows and colours. Sienkiewicz uses the Japanese aesthetic “Bokeh” which allows for subjective exploration of nature while defusing, softening or creating an out of focus image. Pushing analog photography beyond traditional limits, Sienkiewicz’s latest series of images turns traditional landscapes into a multitude of reflections passing through light; producing unexpected and magical results.
