Painter, Photographer

View items sold at auction

Polish artist Zdzislaw Beksinski was born in 1929, and his artwork mirrors the dark and volatile time of his youth and growing up during WWII. Though he studied architecture in college, he grew a distaste for the profession after working the job for a short time, and instead, threw himself into his paintings in the early 1950s. His ability to play with light and dark tones created many pieces with subject matters that bordered on the apocalyptic.

Zdzislaw Beksinski art and prints are often interpreted as dark and foreboding among collectors, but the artist claimed there was no symbolism to anything he painted. Zdzislaw Beksinski paintings will always hold an air of mystery as he painted them simply to bring his imaginings to life. Many of Zdzislaw Beksinski prints, starting from the 1960s, impart surrealism, an influence in his pieces that lasted through the 1980s.
