My favorite painters – Part 1

I have a few favorite artists. I'll start from one, who is perhaps the least known of the bunch. Andrzej Wróblewski Andrzej Wroblewski is a Polish painter who after the II World War became famous for his original paintings devoted mainly to a human. He was creating both experimental and abstract paintings, as well as inspired by the social realism. His favorite technique was especially oil, gouache, drawing, graphics (including monotype). Wroblewski was primarily a realist and figurative. His early series of abstract paintings of the late 40s - solar abstractions, not really raise my admiration and my impression is…

Contemporary art vs. modern – what’s the difference?

Contemporary art vs. modern - what’s the difference? Modern…. Contemporary… For majority of people, the two words are used almost mutually in conversations about current events or fashion. However, in the art world, there is, indeed, a difference between the two… First of all, the two terms are not interchangeable. There is a difference, and it is based on rough date ranges established by art historians, art critics, curators and the like. They recognized a distinct shift that took place, marking the end of Modernism and the beginning of the contemporary age. Modern art is that which was created sometime…

Guest writings – Road to Japan

From Kyoto to Edo In Japan between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries the emperor stood highest in the hierarchy, but the actual rule was exercised by the chief commander and chief executive: the shogun. Japan had at that time two major metropolises: Kyoto, where the emperor and Edo (today's Tokyo) resided, where the shogun was stationed. There was a lively exchange between the two centers. Today, this distance (500 km) of the fast train goes on in less than a couple of hours, so the journey takes a little longer, so dozens of stations have been stationed on a number…

Guest writings – What was under the eyelids of Andrzej Wajda?

Introduction What is afterimage? Professor Władysław Strzeminski explained it this way: you are gazing at what surrounds you, then you close your eyes. What you see under the eyelids, it is afterimages. Strzeminski was a well known and respected avant-garde painter before the II World War (obviously valued by those who appreciated the avant-garde). After the war, however, the fate of a prominent artist unfolded tragically. He was expelled from Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, brought to humiliation and misery. He probably died of tuberculosis in 1952. Andrzej Wajda studied painting at that time in Krakow. He belonged to…

The beginning

Passion for art Passion for drawing and painting as the majority of children I had showed before I started talking. The farther in years the more visual experiments I had on my account. With time, my joyful creativity has been somewhat organized as I began to attend classes of drawing and painting, in the various community centers. Then there was five years at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. At that time, I painted mostly oil - still life, nudes, and in spare time abstractions. Then came a very looong break. Fortunately, this period has gone and now I can…
