Zdzislaw Beksinski (1929 - 2005)
In 1947-1952 studied at the Architecture Faculty of Cracow’s Technology Institute. Emerged as an autodidact artist to gain a primary position among Polish post-war artists. In his early years experimented with photography to shift his interest toward abstract paintings mostly made of metal elements (1958-1962). In the next years (1962-1974) Beksinski focused on ink drawing creating distorted and caricatural figures on paper. After 1974 Beksinski concentrated on painting only. His style based on technical mastery circling around apocaliptic as well as sci-fi themes. The Beksinski’s canvas are full of horror creatures, half-man half-beasts, ghosts as well as vamp femme fatales. Beksinski signed his works with symbols and not regular titles only to undeline his lack of interest in verbal side of art. In his late period worked many with digital graphics. His awesome way of art gathered around him legions of fans. Recognized as a tragic artist was murdered in his Warsaw apartment on February 21, 2005.
