Stanislaw Zoladz was born in 1952 in Poland, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Since 1978 he lives and works in Sweden.
To find motifs for his paintings, Stanislaw is always on the hunt for exiting light settings. In Simpnäs and Arholma in the archipelago of Roslagen, outside Stockholm, are Stanislaw’s favorite spots to paint. There, he returns to the same motifs over and over again, finding them new each time light and weather sets a little bit differently on them. Nature is a predominant theme in his work. Boats, tractors or cottages sometimes reminisce of human presence. If Stanislaw paintings have one thing in common, then it is his impression of light.
Stanislaw won second prize at the Winsor & Newton’s “Our world in the year 2000” contest, and received his award from Prince Charles, at the ceremony in St. James’ Palace in London, on February 17th, 2000.
He recently received Excellence Prize at Shenhzen Watercolor Biennial China 2013-2014 and recognition for his realistic painting at the World Watermedia Exposition Thailand 2014. He was one of 23 finalists at 1st World Watercolor Competition at Narbonne, France, organized by the art magazine “The Art of Watercolour” (2014).
Stanislaw Zoladz is represented by galleries in many different parts of the world.
