ARTCHAT | How it all began? A retrospective

At the beginning, there was a gift. As a little child, Marian Gołogórski very often modeled small forms and figures for fun. Creating own child's world, using plasticin and modeling clay, he was making first steps towards something that turned out to be his life-long passion and profession. There is an interestng anecdote from an early period of Marian Gołogórski's childhood. That's how he talks about this:

The good friend of my parents, Ms. Eugenia Hejmanowa-Olejnik, who was a Jewish survivor from the Holocaust, worked for Polish Radio. When I was 6 years old, she took three small and charming figures of "Plastuś" (polish children's book character) I made in plasticin. Eugenia passed my little sculptures to the editor's office of Polish Radio in Warsaw. After a couple of days, a very well known Polish actress, Irena Kwiatkowska, who performed the role of Plastuś in the radio programme for children, said "thank you, little Marianek Gołogórski for sending the beautiful figures of Plastuś".

We can say that it was his first success in the artistic field. Surely the most unexpected.

As time went by, Gologorski became a teenager, and had to make a decision about his future. Because he was still passionate with sculpture, he decided to leave Piotrków Trybunalski (a small Polish city) and start artistic education in one of Polish bigger cities. And so, Marian, as a seventeen years old boy became a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.
