One of PL's most internationally recognised and controversial 20th century artists, Zdzisław Beksiński (1925-2005) is known for his large, almost luminous, and emotionally charged paintings depicting monumental structures, grotesque figures and apocalyptic landscapes. The themes of war, ruin, decay and deformity are prevalent throughout his work, which has been described as both 'fantastical realism' and 'dystopian surrealism;' we'd call it something of a cross between H.R. Giger and Francis Bacon.

This exhibit in Praga Koneser Centre will be the largest of the artist's works ever presented in the capital, featuring almost 70 paintings - many from private collections and never displayed for the public before. The exhibit will be accompanied by film screenings and meetings with special guests associated with the artist, who was brutally murdered in his Warsaw apartment in 2005, aged 75.
