Gabriel Kołat
Gabriel Kołat was born in Łódź in 1957. He began his studies at the State Higher School of Fine Arts in Łódź in 1977 and graduated in 1984. From 1988 he worked at the School as Prof. Marian Kępiński’s assistant at the Painting Studio in the Department of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture. In 1996 he obtained a doctorate and earned habilitation in 2004. Since 2008 he has been in charge of the Drawing, Illustration and Comics Studio at the Faculty of Graphics and Painting of the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts Łódź. It is the first and only studio of this kind in Poland. Gabriel Kołat has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions both in Poland and abroad.
In 2007 he formulated the idea of authorial expositions of paintings and drawings (realized in the past and created in connection with the discussed expositions) accompanied by an exhibition catalogue prepared by the author of the works - works presented in such a catalogue create an independent space-time set and become not only the author’s attempt to catalogue the presented pieces, but also a separate editorial form of esoteric, abstract and associative character, a comics narrative, an art book, etc. The originator of this manner of arranging elements of the exhibit called it COMIX’sage. COMIX’sage may be presented as a solo or group exhibition. The first exhibition of this type, entitled ‘COMIX’sage’ was held in the Central Museum of Textiles in Łódź on April 1st, 2009. Gabriel Kołat works in the fields of painting, drawing, graphic art, illustration, comics and composes music.
