Michal Ožibko focuses mainly on photorealistic and hyperrealistic painting on canvas. Painted with classical methods, his compositions draw inspiration from traditional topics and subjects, yet at the same time maintain their distinctive character. The astounding illusiveness of his works comes from Ožibko’s painting technique consisting in the application of many thin glaze layers.
Ožibko also engages himself in abstract painting where he tends to be rather expressive both in style and colour.
