Soccer and painting - two disciplines rarely mentioned in the same breath, but in Gregor Wosik's case the two are closely linked. Born in Poland in 1955, he began his professional career as a professional soccer player looking for something meaningful to do between training and games. He had already attended painting courses as a child. When he picked up a brush again, his paintings quickly gained a lot of attention, and by the time he was 20, he already had his first studio. Gregor's passion, even then and still today, were the realistic scenes of the Old Masters and painting on large surfaces.
Over the years, art took more and more space in his life and so he finally went into semi-retirement and is now for almost 30 years on the road at numerous festivals around the world. But he also does commissioned work for companies. Gregor is one of the few street artists who are parallel in the classical field of canvas painting. In his gallery in Mönchengladbach and with the artist community "The Blue Rhedyter" are organized.
That his hobbyhorse is mainly large 3D images, he has already demonstrated several times at the International StreetArt Festival in Wilhelmshaven. He has already been involved in two world record-breaking paintings in Wilhelmshaven and Sarasota. In 2012, for example, he designed a huge canyon with Noah's Ark on Valois Square. The painting had a size of 1570 square meters and thus made it into the Guinness Book of Records as the "largest street painting in the world".
