Local maze artist and art teacher, Ben Pawlowski, will provide a 90 minute presentation on maze creation and found-object art on November 18th in the Barnes and Noble Café in the Lehigh University Bookstore.
Ben Pawlowski, local maze artist and art teacher will once again bring his talents to Campus Square. This past summer, Pawlowski completed a six-week installation of mazes on the large windows in Campus Square. The installation was one more project that has helped develop Pawlowski as a sought-after local artist.
The event, which starts at 5pm on November 18, will be in the Barnes and Noble Café in the Lehigh University Bookstore and is open to the public. Pawlowski will conduct a demonstration on how he turns a face into a maze, exhibit techniques in using found objects for art, and conduct a basic question and answer session.
Pawlowski’s a featured artist at the Wired Gallery and Cafe on Main Street in Bethlehem. He can also be seen at various art shows and events around the Lehigh Valley. His artwork commonly contains double meanings and hidden messages reflecting both the world of art and his own personal life.
“I try to get my audience to see more in the world around them, to see things from a different perspective,” he says.
Inspired by artists such as Rene Magritte and graffiti artists of the 70’s and 80’s, Pawlowski creates pieces ranging from immense mazes to found object art, such as the chair he has in his living room that was once a television.
Silagh White, director of ArtsLehigh and guarantor for Pawlowski’s work appearing in Campus Square says, “It's been wonderful to see people look at things differently, stop for a moment, wonder and be changed.”
