Since the beginning of his career, the artist has been fascinated by public transport. According to statistics, 14 million Poles have to travel miles everywhere, and the reduction in public transport during the political transformation resulted in some places being impossible to get out of without a car. Residents of Warsaw are better off because the public transport network is continuously being developed. The artist explores the aesthetics of bus fleets from different time periods. He creates a photographic atlas of electric buses and a painting in which he portrays the doors of an old vehicle. The video is an interview with a transport enthusiast who, thanks to her fascination with a driving simulator, ended up behind the wheel of a Warsaw bus and runs the profile @dziewczynazakolkiemautobusu (girlbehindabuswheel).
Igor Przybylski is a painter, makes films, photographs, collages and performances. In his art, he consistently pursues his interest in railways and buses, which for him also means having contact with rolling stock repair shops, depots and, above all, the drivers and locomotive operators. The artist created graphic elements for a computer simulator of the EU07 locomotive used for training drivers. He graduated from the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2002), where he has been running the 3rd Studio of Drawing since 2020. He has exhibited in Poland and abroad. He has been included in the publications: New phenomena in Polish art after 2000, 77 Works of Art with History, Textiles bis. Dictionary of Young Polish Culture, Collection of Contemporary Polish Art of the Upper Silesian Museum in Bytom, Room with a View.
