Community Celebration with Otecki

617 Fillmore Avenue

Join us for a free community celebration at 617 Fillmore Avenue in Buffalo to celebrate the completion of Otecki's mural in the Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood. 

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.

Project Sponsors

This mural has been sponsored in part by Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood Housing Services and M&T Bank.

Additional support for this mural has been provided by Hyatt’s Graphic Supply Company.

The Public Art Initiative was established and is supported by leadership funding from the County of Erie and the City of Buffalo.
