Wojciech Antoni Sobczyński studied sculpture at the Fine Art Academy in Krakow under Professor Jacek Puget in 1968, receiving his MA with distinction. Awarded a Barbara Robertson’s scholarship, Wojciech travelled to London to continue study at the Slade School of Art, University College London under Professor Reg Butler.
He is a sculptor who combines the three dimensional with painting in a distinctive individual style. The artist continuously drives examination of materials, which he transforms, altering their original purpose. His artworks venture into novel solutions in terms of form and texture but the final effect remains disciplined and retains the echo of a classical canon.
His art was the subject of Ewa Sobczyk’s MA dissertation (2015) supervised by Prof. Doc. Hab. Jan Wiktor Sienkiewicz – Faculty of History of Polish Art and Culture in Exile, University Mikołaja Kopernika in Toruń. Wojciech has written for London based publication Nowy Czas for over a decade, contributing articles and essays engaging in art critique and analysis. In 2018, he became the London correspondent of FORMAT art magazine publishing in association with Wrocław Academy of Arts.
