I had no idea how to paint such a painting anyway.

I remember how I copypainted Black Madonna of Częstochowa with oil paints on a piece of cardboard when young. I still have it in my archives, looks extremely infantile. :):)

black and white drawings.

I saw Siudmak's painting for the first time in "Fantastyka" too

Now when I look through old issues I see there were quite a few which featured Siudmak`s art.

Now I've remembered that it was "Nowa Fantastyka", to be precise - I'm pretty sure this is the issue in which I saw that painting - I remember this cover (which is also Siudmak's work):

a.allegroimg.com/original/03f994/ad01ff834c41b38ff1a4ee136112/Miesiecznik-Nowa-Fantastyka-9-93

I also remember this one, "Podwójne oblicze duszy", from that issue, I think:

double

black and white drawings.

Even those pencil drawings show that he's a perfectionist - they're so detailed and refined :)

I still have it in my archives, looks extremely infantile. :):)

In the beginning copying is a good way to learn drawing/painting :) That's great that you kept it, btw :)) I don't have any drawings left from my childhood or early teen years - I guess everything was thrown away. There's only one notebook left from when I was a younger teen - I used to draw in it during summer holidays at my grandma's in the countryside. But my cousins took it without telling me about it and now it resides in Wrocław ;P

Now when I look through old issues

You still have them? That's cool... I don't remember what happened to our issues (and I think we had only two in total).

Btw, pawian, you revived my Siudmak nostalgia ;D I feel like copying his works again after so many years lol

That means you couldn`t come across his art in 1980s like me coz New Si-Fi has been published since 1990.

Siudmak nostalgia

hahaha it wasn`t my intention.

David Friedmann 1893-1980 (born just across the border in Ostrava) who spent WW2 in the Lódż Ghetto, in Oświęcim (at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp) and Gliwice.

He painted this in September 1945 in memory of his wife and kids who he last saw in the ghetto in Łódż.

Nice painting!

I used to love going to the museum. We have a real nice one in Chicago.

Wyspanski has great artwork! I stayed at his hotel in Krakow too...lol

Nice painting!

I agree. The contrast between the couple and the coldness of the streets is amazing.

amazing

I wouldn't mind having a copy of that for my rec room aka man cave:)

Its has the "Noir" vibe to it!

I have a picture like this with a couple walking the street in Paris on a rainy day. Makes you stop and think...
The one in #64 I would have to be paid to bring home.

That looks like 1970s album art (Yes) had this on all their covers.

It looks interesting.... I like Salvador Dali as well, he was a wild man!

One by Paweł Kuczyński b. 1976

1970s album art

These are by Stanisław Zagórski (b. 1933)

It looks interesting..

True art meets two conditions: It can be destroyed easily and it changes the way we feel. If a 10-yo kid drew another circle, the author himself wouldn't notice. Hit a wrong key playing Moonlight Sonata and the whole world will scream.

Moonlight Sonata

Another classic! Did you know John Lennon played it backwards for the first few measures on the song Because? LOL I know all Beatles trivia..

These are by Stanisław Zagórski

Excellent... Id love to have that Rolling Stones poster too!

I like this artist .....Boleslas Biegas

Hes kind of depressing though.

Nice, though dark.

Poland seems to specialise in depressing and dark art nowadays and there's a real following for Polish dark art. Beksiński was the best known, and he has many imitators.

Here's a (slightly) more cheerful one. Wall art, by Sainer and Bezt (known as Etam Cru), Richmond, VA (2013)

Check out this Polish Artist, Eugeniusz Zak. The first one freaks me out coz the hill looks stoned..haha

The 3rd painting is from Zdzislaw Beksins, never heard of him but really dark.

Zdzislaw Beksins

Beksiński.

Born 1929, stabbed to death 2005. Very very popular, though I'm not personally a fan. Huge talent though, and his work fetches high prices now.

Another dark one since people seem to like them.

Dawid Planeta, Dreams, 2019

Ive read he was stabbed by a 19 year old acquaintance after he refused to give him/her money. Probably, much more to that story. Im not liking his work that much, looks a bit Satanic to me. I like dark colors, not occult based subjects.

Dawid Planeta, Dreams, 2019

Interesting and quite good, but not really fo me.

nd his work fetches high prices now.

Not as much as Hunter Bidens! lol Did you see that rubbish yet? I dont want to ruin this thread with it.

Leon Chwistek
I found this painter, he has a cool style...

The son of the building's caretaker. He was quite rich and old but lived in an ordinary block; people used to tap money off him.

Im not liking his work that much

He always maintained that there was humour in his work. I'm not a fan either. Nothing occult, though there are one or two Polish artists who paint esoteric themes, generally much brighter than Beksiński's art.

Leon Chwistek

He was good.
