Untitled, Grain Elevator, Yorkton Saskatchewan, Photography and Image transfer by Dave Swiecicki, 12″ x 16″

Dave Swiecicki is an artist, musician, photographer and video artist living and working in Winnipeg. Even while immersed in music for more than a decade as keyboardist and guitar player for Winnipeg hard rock outfit Jet Set Satellite, Dave Swiecicki’s sense of composition, atmosphere and texture conjured rich, cinematic visuals possessing both resonant subtlety and moving drama. The camera is his main instrument of choice although he explores in paint, image transfers and mixed media.

Dave’s unbridled passion to be creative has driven him to spend endless hours in the studio creating an impressive portfolio with a breathtaking visual aesthetic inspired by everything from the films of Stanley Kubrick to the print design of Saul Bass.
