Adam’s Heart By Piotr Chrzanowski 2016-12-23

Adam’s Heart By Piotr Chrzanowski

Piotr Chrzanowski AKA Chrzan and his crew with the Urban Forms Foundation painted a new site-specific mural “Adam’s Heart” in the city of Lodz, Poland. It refers to Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam”. Due to the fact that the wall belongs to the facilities of the Medical University the artist decided to link his design with medicine.


”The idea came suddenly” – Chrzanowski says. “I was going through some classical pictures and came across “The Creation of Adam”. I thought it might be a good reference, a good starting point both at the level of meaning and composition. I wanted to distract attention from the biblical aspect, which is actually the least important here, so I inserted the whole chain of DNA. It passes between the divine and the human hand, closing the composition on the right. It also brings mysticism and science together – God created man, and man discovered DNA, here we have some consistency”.
