Wacom Presents: Let’s Talk Art with illustrator Bartosz Kosowski

Part 2 of our Let´s Talk Art video series hosted by PosterSpy founder Jack Woodhams is hereJack visits prolific artists to explore their everyday lives as creatives working in today’s industry.

In this interview Jack talks with Bartosz Kosowski, a Polish illustrator based in Łódź. Bartosz is well known for his movie posters and editorial illustrations. Focusing primarily on portraiture, Bartosz has an eye for capturing incredible details whilst creating thought provoking and aesthetically pleasing images. 

Using a Wacom pen display, the Cintiq 27QHD Touch, Bartosz creates his illustrations either entirely in Photoshop or sometimes by mixing hand drawn illustrations with digital.

Here’s what Bartosz had to say about the series:

"I'm Bartosz Kosowski, an illustrator and poster artist from Łódź, Poland. On a daily basis I create posters, portraits as well as editorial and advertising illustrations and I have been lucky enough to work with such clients as Canal +, Legendary Pictures, "The New Yorker", "The Economist", "Politico", "The New Republic" or "The Hollywood Reporter".

Recently I've had huge pleasure to meet Jack Woodhams, the founder of PosterSpy here in Łódź where we talked about my work, daily routine and inspirations. We also took a closer look at the creation process of one of my recent movie posters. I am really happy to be part of Let's Talk Art series so I hope you'll like the interview."
