Igor Mitoraj, a sculptor seeking inspiration in the ancient Greek legend
The famous Per Adriano sculpture is the art work of Igor Mitoraj. He is a sculpture artist from Poland, is one of the most famous sculptors in Europe. His sculptures have played a very important role in reviving ancient art and modern innovation. His works can be found in dozens of museums, foundations and the headquarters of the largest companies in the world.
Ancient times is one of the main sources of inspiration for artists. His sculptures directly refer to Greek and Roman mythology and history, sometimes included in the title: Icarus, Centaurus, Eros, Mars, Gorgon, Pasachoisaka. As art critics have pointed out, while evoking the beauty and perfect proportion of classical sculptures, Mitorai reinterprets them in a contemporary way. He visualized the imperfection of human nature by deliberately destroying and destroying the surface of the statue.
For Mitoraj, the culture and art of the ancient Greeks were supreme. Mitoraj recalls the past, that is, the past before modernism. They don’t want to have anything to do with the language of steel, glass and geometry. Their ideal world lies in the past. However, the sculpture of this internationally active sculptor is modern. None of his sculptures is complete. Mitoraj only showed us the fragments. He did it in a big format. As if they were fragments of a lost civilization. These broken ideals contain beautiful meanings.
