Polish-born artist Maciej Urbanek lives and works between the UK and the U.S. Since graduating from the RA Schools, Urbanek has been exhibiting internationally and was awarded the Royal Academy Gold Medal in 2015. By elevating the prosaic and everyday, from water to bin bags, to striking visual spectacles, Urbanek encourages us to recalculate our aesthetic and experiential viewpoints.

Of Papyrus, Urbanek says: ‘I want to preserve the complexity that is in front of me but I also want to draw attention to every single particular thing that is there …it’s almost like an accidental busy universe that is holding itself by a thread, but it holds itself: it’s all there in front of you.’
