Igor Mitoraj (born 1944) is a Polish artist born in Oederan, Germany. The monumental works by this artist recover the spirit from Greece, from Rome, from the great sculpture masters of the Renaissance and are inspired by history and mythology subjects from a contemporary perspective.

  • Igor Mitoraj (born 1944) is a Polish artist born in Oederan , Germany . In 2006, he created the new bronze doors and a statue of John the Baptist for the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome .   This year (2011) there is an additional reason to visit the Valle dei Templi. About two dozen works in bronze and marble by a modern Polish/German artist, Igor Mitoraj, have been installed around the site. Mitoraj is heavily influenced by classical sculpture, so his works complement the scenic ruins. Sometime in November his sculptures will be removed, so you have until then to see the site with them in place.
  • Some suggest that this mutilated head represents a loss of history, myths and of a connection with higher powers; to others it is a criticism of contemporary civilization and a warning against its destructive power. “ Eros Bound” (“Eros spętany”) sculpture by Igor Mitoraj was placed at Main Market Square (Rynek Główny) in Kraków. This is the sculpture’s temporary location. Nobody knows where its permanent place shall be. In the Internet poll, the inhabitants of Kraków chose to locate the sculpture a Railway Station Square (Plac Dworcowy). The artist is of a different opinion; he spent his youth in Kraków and wishes to have his work placed in the town's most prestigious The sculpture is over 3.5 m long and over 2 m high. “Eros Bound” depicts a man’s lying head. This is Igor Mitoraj’s fourth sculpture in Kraków, but the first presented outdoors. The National Museum has two works by him in its collection; one decorates the court of Collegium Iuridicum, the Jagiellonian University. Igor Mitoraj’s sculpture shall remain in front of the town hall for 4 months. Then... perhaps for another 4 months. Before it can be taken to Mały Rynek (Small Market Square) - as Jacek Majchrowski, President, wishes - the reconstruction of this square may begin. However, it is known that Rynek Główny is the sculpture’s exhibition only location accepted by the artist

  • There are 60 sculptures, statues and monuments in la Défense and Igor Mitoraj’s sculpture Tindaro is one of my favourites. It is so well positioned in front of the KPMG building that it would seem that the building was built to honour the sculpture. As you walk around la Défense you’ll see a variety of interesting sculptures by dozens of artists, it’s a giant outdoor gallery of some beautiful works of many different styles. It’s nice to see such a blend of art and commerce and if you are a fan of architecture and art then take the time to wander around and make sure you stop by Espace Info Défense near the giant sculpture by Miro to pick up a map of the area and get some information about what there is to see and do from the very friendly people that work there"
  • Igor Mitoraj (born 1944) - Polish sculptor who used to live in Italy, in 2003 came back to Poland. He draws inspiration from ancient Greek sculpture. A characteristic motif in his work is human frailty; the bandaged body, hollowed out figures. Well-known works by Mitoraj include 'The head', 'Venus' and 'Eros'. In 2006, Igor Mitoraj created the new bronze doors and a statue of John the Baptist for the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome. His monumental works are found in squares and courtyards, from Paris to Tokyo, in Pietrasanta, Bologna, Rome, Cracow and Warsaw.
  • Igor Mitoraj (born 1944) is a Polish artist born in Oederan , Germany . He studied painting at the Kraków School of Art and at the Kraków Academy of Art under Tadeusz Kantor . After graduating, he had several joint exhibitions, and held his first solo exhibition in 1967 at the Krzysztofory Gallery in Poland . In 1968, he moved to Paris to continue his studies at the National School of Art. Shortly afterwards, he became fascinated by Latin American art and culture, spending a year painting and travelling around Mexico . The experience led him to take up sculpture. He returned to Paris in 1974 and two years later he held another major solo exhibition at the Gallery La Hune , including some sculptural work. The success of the show persuaded him that he was first and foremost a sculptor.
  • Having previously worked with terracotta and bronze , a trip to Carrara , Italy , in 1979 turned him to using marble as his primary medium and in 1983 he set up a studio in Pietrasanta . In 2006, he created the new bronze doors and a statue of John the Baptist for the basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli in Rome . In 2003 he returned to Poland. Mitoraj's sculptural style is rooted in the classical tradition with its focus on the well modelled torso. However, Mitoraj introduces a post-modern twist with ostentatiously truncated limbs, emphasising the damage sustained by most genuine classical sculptures.
