Franek Boczarski was born in Edinburgh in 1950, the son of a regular Polish cavalry officer and Scottish mother. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art, St Martin’s School of Art and Goldsmiths College before being awarded Young Sculptor of the Year Award in 1976 and 1978. Boczarski’s work has been exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Paris Print Fair, whilst his one man shows have been in London. Recently he has achieved increasing success with his portraits in watercolours, also finishing a series of figurative charcoal studies.

Aubergine belongs to Boczarski’s earlier collection of lithographs, monotypes and etchings. Strong draughtsmanship and authoritative use of colour characterises this earlier body of work, as seen in this lithograph. The simple, humble form is brought to life by the dynamic use of line and colour.
