Tomasz Rut - The Artwork of Tomasz Rut in the Vatican Collection                                 (back to top of page)

  

On Wednesday, October 12, 2011 during the artist's audience with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, attended by thousands of spectators from around the world at the St. Peter's square in the Vatican, two large paintings by Tomasz Rut entered the St. Peter's cathedral after being blessed by the Holy Father.

Painted earlier this year to commemorate the beatification of John Paul II, the two originals on canvas: "Nolite Timere" & "Be Not Afraid" pay tribute to the beloved late Pope and depict John Paul II as the Saint and as the charismatic leader of the world accompanied by another legendary figure behind the political changes of the twentieth century, the first President of democratic Poland, Lech Walesa.

 

During his meeting with Pope Benedict, Tomasz presented him also with the book recently published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana featuring the third of his series of “Nolite Timere” paintings honoring Pope John Paul II and President Lech Walesa.

“I am deeply moved and still overwhelmed by the experience”, humbly says Tomasz Rut, already considered as one of the most collectible contemporary artists: “To see my paintings in the company of Michelangelo, Rafael and all the other great names who have led, defined and inspired our culture for hundreds of years is the greatest honor and acknowledgment I could hope for.”

The two original paintings owned by the Vatican and blessed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, are being released as limited edition prints, signed and numbered by the Artist.

TOMASZ RUT - BIO                                 (back to top of page)




The art of Tomasz Rut, recently included in the Vatican Collection and blessed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, continues to expand the realm of contemporary figurative painting to the limits achieved only by the greatest art masters in history.

Evoking the passion of Michelangelo, the subtlety of Caravaggio and the flamboyance of Rubens, Tomasz Rut, also named one of the most collectible contemporary artists by Robb Report’s Best of the Best, resurrects the dormant classical tradition of painting in a XXI century tribute to the perseverance of the human ability and spirit, which transcends the ebbs and flows of modern fashions.

Inherent in all of Tomasz Rut’s original oils on canvas, ranging from large scale dramatic allegories to small, sensuous studies, is the artificial patina he adds on surface to create an illusion of an old fresco and accentuate the timeless subject matter. “By this juxtaposition of spiritual versus physical, I hope to convey the quality that transcends time and suggests the eternal nature of our ethical struggle for survival”, says Tomasz, “Hence, beauty and decay, creation and destruction as the woof and warp of my canvases".

Conceived during the XVII Olympic Games in Rome, Italy, at the Olympic village by Tadeusz Rut, an Olympic athlete and medalist, and his wife, Wanda, an artist and art teacher, Tomasz was born in Poland in 1961 and displayed his extraordinary talent since early childhood.

At the age of eleven, his first drawings, collected by his mother; frequently from his school notebooks in lieu of good school grades; were exhibited at a solo gallery show, receiving a write-up in Warsaw Daily. Even at that early stage, young Tomasz’s exploration, often satirical, of humanity and his search for an artistic expression, echoing a variety of familiar modern renditions and classical themes, is abundantly clear.

Interestingly, apart from his prominent, mainstream realistic form of capturing his subject matter, TR never abandoned “frivolous”, abstract experimentation and satire, as evidenced in a multitude of private sketches and drawings he continues to amuse himself with in his spare time.

In his twenties, TR extensively pursued formal art studies. He attended Pratt Institute in New York, but despite the recognition of the Presidents list, he chose to investigate the purely technical aspect of art, graduating with a Master’s Degree in Art Conservation from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In the course of his studies, he became intimately familiar with all traditional easel and mural painting techniques, including varieties of oil and fresco, and gained a profound knowledge of art history and understanding of it's styles.

While continually drawing and painting in search of a definitive form of expression, upon returning to settle in the U.S., Tomasz briefly employed his skills working for Biltmore House in Asheville, NC and on several mural conservation projects throughout the Eastern U.S., which included the prestigious Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the State Capitol in Trenton, N.J., Vizcaya Museum in Miami, FL and the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, FL.

Within the following few years, his attention shifted to executing large scale decorative projects with many well known interior designers for numerous prominent Palm Beach and South Beach estates in Florida. “I must say I was quite taken by the splendor, aesthetic challenge and vast scale of some projects”, recalls Tomasz: “It took one year, eight assistants and approximately half a million dollars worth of 24 Karat gold leaf alone to turn one of the estates into a trompe l’oeil (deceive the eye) European palace”. “After this, I knew I could paint anything, in any style, anywhere, with anything and on anything”, he adds jokingly, but not without merit.

Finding and formulating his own distinctive style and method of painting in the early 1990s, Tomasz gradually abandoned commissioned work and devoted himself fully to painting in his studio. “Before I even had a collection of paintings to speak of”, Tomasz says: “A British art publisher grabbed the few pieces I had laying around and introduced me to the idea and market of limited edition prints. My work was very well received and, shortly, appeared in many galleries on land and on cruise ships, marketed by my exclusive agents and publishers”.

In 1999 Robb Report’s Best of the Best issue named Tomasz Rut as one of the most collectible contemporary artists, among such names as Botero, Chihuly, Hockney, and Clemente. After many years of being represented exclusively by others, Tomasz Rut is now marketing and selling his artwork independently, enjoying direct and personal contact with galleries and collectors.

On October 12, 2011 during the artist’s audience with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, two large original paintings by Tomasz Rut officially entered St. Peter’s Cathedral becoming part of the Vatican collection.
