Amazing Art of Zdzislaw Beksinski
« on: January 31, 2013, 04:35:42 PM »


"It misses the point to ask me what scenes in my paintings 'mean'. Simply, I do not know, myself. Moreover, I am not at all interested in knowing."







Zdzislaw Beksinski (24 February 1929 - 22 February 2005) was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and fantasy artist.
He was born in the town of Sanok in southern Poland. After studying architecture in Cracow, he returned to Sanok in 1955.

Subsequent to this education he spent several years as a construction site supervisor, a job he hated.
At that time he became interested in artistic photography and photomontage, sculpture and painting.

Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a 'Baroque' or a 'Gothic' manner.
The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his fantastic realism period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, nightmarish environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksiński's later paintings.

His wife, Zofia, died in 1998; a year later, on Christmas Eve 1999, his son Tomasz committed suicide. Beksiński discovered his son's body.
Unable to come to terms with his son's death, he kept an envelope "For Tomek in case I kick the bucket" pinned to his wall.
On 21 February 2005, Beksiński was found dead in his flat in Warsaw with 17 stab wounds on his body; two of the wounds were determined to have been fatal.
