Tomasz Alen Kopera (Poland) attended the University of Technology in Wrocław, where he gained a degree in construction engineering. His artistic talent came to light already in early childhood. Human nature and the mysteries of the Universe are his inspiration. His oil paintings are permeated with symbols that relate to the human psyche and man’s relationship with his world. Tomasz is celebrated for his acute attention to detail and mastery of colour. “In my work I try to reach to the subconscious. I want to keep the viewer’s attention for a longer moment. Make him want to reflect, contemplate.” In 2005, Tomasz moved to Northern Ireland where he lives now.
