Kapow Coffee are pleased to share with you the drawings of this first-time exhibiting artist. Here, in his own words…

Hey, I’m Pawel Bastkowski (AKA Bastek). 

I’m originally from Poland, currently living in Bradford. I started doing this kind of work around three years ago. I’m completely self-taught and do it purely out of satisfaction of completing great pieces and to fill my spare time.

Most of my work, as you will see are paintings, sketches and drawings of different parts of the body, in a cartoonist style. My inspiration came from the first time I seen one of the CD cover of the band ‘Moderat’. My favourite artists are Kristian Hammerstad, Benedikt Rugar and Chris King. I like the bold outlines and appreciate the effect which can be made through these. I enjoy getting lost in the moment, ensuring my love for art can be seen through the finished product.
