Janusz Migacz was born in Gdansk, Poland, in 1956. After graduating from the Ggynia High School of Visual Arts and then at the Academy of Fine Arts in his hometown, he became a pupil of the great Polish painter Kazimierz Ostrowski. He stayed in his studio for five years. In 1986, Migacz moved to London, where he observed and studied the paintings of great masters, such as Rembrandt, on display at the National Gallery. He then moved to Quebec in 1988, where he enjoyed rapid success with art lovers. "I have a preference for bodies in motion, those that are articulated according to figures developed for dance, for example."
Migacz explores the world of soft and bold contrasts of light and shadow. Oranges, yellows, ochres and browns predominate, surrounded by lines of green or black. The pictorial universe of Migacz sensitively translates the expression of human passions through the body. Janusz Migacz's work is part of prestigious private and corporate collections in Quebec, Poland, London, Paris and the United States.
