Wojciech Kołacz, a.k.a. Otecki (Polish, born 1984), is an illustrator, printmaker, painter, and mural artist working in Wrocław, Poland. Otecki finds influence in Cubism, non-Western art, and Slavonic folklore. He is fond of presenting dualistic worlds and characters; especially human-animal combinations that are “part majesty and part mystery,” as the artist puts it.
This project is supported in part by Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood Housing Services, which partnered with the AK Public Art Initiative in 2017 to produce Keir Johnston and Ernel Martinez’s Welcome Wall mural.
