Warren Podguszer’s Art Show | 11/03/2021-04/05/2021 | All Day

Warren Podguszer's Art Show

Stop by the library from March 11 to May 4 during opening hours to see Warren Podguszer’s Art Show. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Warren Podguszer or “Wawapod”, is 29 years old and lives in Paris. He has been practicing street photography for 6 years. At the beginning of his artistic journey, he created works of art digitally using images and photos. However, very quickly, he felt the urge to work with canvas. He equates painting to cooking, even if he doesn’t really know how to cook. When he paints, he has the impression that he takes ingredients he loves, here and there, and then mixes them to create a dish that makes him feel good!

Through his art, he aims to share nostalgic memories with the public. He tries, most of the time, with a range of colors, to bring to life characters that made us dream during our childhood. He takes great pleasure in creating worlds that mix references from our past or our present. The idea behind his art is also to provoke different reactions from the public by adding sentences to make people think, laugh or to denounce an issue. Passionate about art, he enjoys integrating iconic works of art into his style.

Like a journey inside his head, through his thoughts, dreams and inspirations.
