For many years paintings by Zdzisław Beksiński have been attracting unabated interest from a wide public – not only fine arts connoisseurs. On our website his works are classified as: Fantasy Land, Fantasy Characters, Metaphysics and People. There is no use in looking for someone who would be indifferent to a Beksiński painting. His works can be shocking, dark, and full of melancholy at the same time. They are supposed to reflect the artist’s fears and nightmares. Beksiński’s works of art are profoundly meaningful. Deformed human figures and somber, abandoned worlds are common motifs in his paintings. As the artist himself claimed, he painted death in order to forget about it, at least for a while. Zdzisław Beksiński is one of the most famous and talented Polish painters. An architectural engineer by education, he was artistically active in the second half of the 20th century. The year 1964 when he held his exhibition in Warsaw was a breakthrough in his career. It was then that Beksiński became ”fashionable” among a broader public. During his successful career he not only painted, but also sculpted, did drawings and took photographs (he was e.g. a forerunner of Polish body-art). His turbulent life has attracted the interest of many researchers of culture. Paintings by Zdzisław Beksiński are classified as surrealist. His works of art are widely appreciated all over the world and his paintings are repeatedly sold at exuberant prices at auctions.
