About

Photo by Phillipp Greindl

Lukasz Aleksander Glowacki aka MAMUT was born in Sandomierz/ Poland and moved to Linz/ Austria as a kid, where he still lives and works today. He is one half of the collective Cancontrollers working together with KRYOT since 1999.

MAMUT draws lines using different tools – the impulsivity of a moment floats symmetrically onto surfaces from canvas to containers. Lines are turning into ornamental shapes, into areal layers, into graphic illustrations in the fields of spraycan art, sketchy caricatures and extensive murals; sociocritical, personal, human, abstract, surreal! The repetitive iteration of motion compresses experience into organic works somewhere between calligraphic reduction and overloaded freestyle. Flow finds form.
