About

The first major UK exhibition of Polish artist Wilhelm Sasnal features over 60 of his paintings from the last 10 years. Anything can become the subject for Sasnal's paintings: from portraits of his family and friends to the inside of his eye lid; from photographs taken on his world travels to images from the troubling chapters in the history of Poland including World War II and the Holocaust. His style fuses atmospheric Romanticism with cool Realism and ironic Pop as he overrides traditional distinctions between abstract and figurative art. Alongside the paintings, the Gallery presents a selection of Sasnal's films. Wilhelm Sasnal lives and works in Krakow, Poland.
