Zdzislaw Beksinski (1929-2005)
Zdzislaw Beksinski was a Polish artist best known for his surreal dystopian imagery. His paintings, photographs, and prints depicted macabre otherworldly spaces and figures. “I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams,” he once reflected. Born on February 24, 1929 in Sanok, Poland, Beksinski had no formal art training, but instead studied architecture at the Kraków University of Technology. He found work in his hometown as a vehicle designer after graduating, indulging his interest in photography during his free time. Throughout his career, Beksinski was interested in fantasy, sadomasochism, and erotica. Beksinski died tragically when he was murdered by an acquaintance on February 21, 2005 in Warsaw, Poland at the age of 75.
