Indeed yes. Too late to edit. An interesting artist. Started doing Social Realism, managed to move to the west and changed to abstracts.

A contemporary of that British chap Bacon?

A decade younger and a very different life story. Much more positive, optimistic and accessible in his themes too. His Social Realist stuff was subtly subversive as well.

That's the one I didn't like as I've never been a fan of abstract art.

City life diverse externally yet empty internally and overcast, while rural life simple yet bright and tranquil? The rural and urban are intertwined, each a connected part of the whole? Or, is it new life in the country is built upon the hollow urban experience?

Sort of interesting, not crazy about the drawerly style. Nice colors, though.

Same, though neo-surrealism has a real market nowadays. Hyper-realism too.

Ja też. Myślałem, że ludziom się to spodoba.

The skills and techniques to produce those types of work are amazing, but as a piece of art they are boring as hell.

Hard to disagree with that, however they do sell well while other more interesting works don't. This is nothing new.

Tomasz Alen Kopera, a contemporary artist, creates his surreal art with oil paints on linen:

This one is based on a well known painting - do you know which one?

"The Wolf and the Lamb" (inspired by the fable by Jean De La Fontaine) was sold this year at an auction for 72 000 PLN:

Nature seems to be one of the main motifs in his paintings:

I like them. There is something captivating in them

Oh, sorry, it should be Tomasz "Alen" Kopera, since "Alen" is his artistic nickname.

@Lenka, I like them too :) I agree, and there's something tender and humane about them too, I think. They're pretty clever and imaginative and also very well painted, he has great skill and a lot of patience, I'm guessing lol (such detailed quality paintings must take months to paint).

This one is based on a well known painting - do you know which one?

It's based on this painting by Caspar David Friedrich:

Yes. Not my type of picture, I shouldn't like them at all but yes, they're good, even very good, and yes there's something captivating in them.

Caspar David Friedrich:

Dreamy stuff!

This guy is not so much an artist from Poland as an artist sometimes in Poland. He's painted here in Poland, has personal connections here and has exhibited at WDK Kielce. I went there to see his exhibition, really enjoyed it and thought of him when Paulina mentioned Caspar David Friedrich. I know him slightly and like him. His name is Heino Blum.

I was flabbergasted when I first saw Wojtek Siudmak`s images in si-fi Fantastyka monthly in 1980s. Reminds of Salvador Dali`s imagery.

I saw Siudmak's painting for the first time in "Fantastyka" too :)) It was that last one that you posted - "Filaments of Destiny". I was a teen back then, still at the secondary school and didn't have much contact with art. I loved that painting :) I liked it so much that I copied that hand and those torsos on strings with ballpen into my notebook :) It made me want to paint with "real" paints and that painting was probably one of the things that inspired me to go to an art school (I wanted to paint like Siudmak! :)). So, it was pretty cool and nostalgic for me to see his paintings live during his exhibition in Kielce. I think until that time I didn't realise that a lot of his works were painted in acrylics, which makes them even more impressive.

Amazing. :):):)

I copied that hand and those torsos on strings with ballpen

I wouldn`t dare to do such a thing, although most of his art published then was black and white drawings.

More of his - It seems his fav colour is blue. The colour of the sky....... which is limitless like the artist`s imagination. Just a random thought of mine.....

Well, that hand and torsos are monochromatic - painted in blues only and the ballpen was blue too, so it kind of made sense ;D

But, yeah, it wasn't the same. At that time I had no proper paints though, only some "plakatówki" for kids, and I had no idea how to paint such a painting anyway. And as I wrote in my previous post, that painting made me want to learn to paint with "real" paints :)

It seems his fav colour is blue.

Yes, it looks like it :)

Not my type of picture

Not entirely mine either, some of his paintings I like more, some less, but generally I appreciate his skills, imagination and that humane touch :)

I shouldn't like them at all

Why is that?

Btw, I'm interested in computer graphics and when I saw one of Kopera's paintings on the internet for the first time I thought at first that it's a digital artwork, not traditional :) (this shows how good his painting technique is) - it was this one - "One Dollar":
