Przemek Pyszek’s works deal with the utopian aspects of Polish architecture in the post- communist era. Following his family’s emigration from Poland to Canada during his childhood and his later studies in the field of architecture in Winnipeg, Pyszczek laid the focus on the phenomenon of mass-produced residential blocks, in particular on the embellishment of their façades and building structures, extending to the surrounding environment and then to urban systems. With his works, the artist makes references to colours, forms, specific visual features, ornaments, graphic structures and material situations, which he recombines, condenses and overlaps to create new relationships and contexts.

His recent exhibitions include: “Dispositivos Para La Memoria (solo)“, Galeria Campeche, Mexico (2022); “Świat nie wierzy łzom“, Galeria Arsenał w Białymstoku, Białystok (2022); “How (Not) to Fit In - Metaphern der Adoleszenz”, Villa Merkel, Esslingen (2022); “A Dark Light” (solo), Galerie Derouillon, Paris (2021); “Park Platz”, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2021); “In Conversation, Chapter 1”, RIBOT Gallery, Milano (2020); “An Exercise in Tenderness”, Kunstverein Manana Bold/ saasfee* Pavillon, Frankfurt (2020); NADA Miami (solo), Galerie Derouillon, Miami (2019); “Project 3” (solo), Galerie Derouillon, Paris (2019); Art Los Angeles Contemporary (Duo with Guy Yanai),Galerie Derouillon, Los Angeles (2019).
