Dark Surrealism of Zdzisław Beksiński

At Beksiński na Śląsku in Tychy, we viewed some nice paintings. Dark surrealist journeys from the 1970s to somewhere like 2005. The gallery itself was not so great. They could have done a much better job of the lighting, set up etc. And 10 euros for entry is a bit steep for such a small show with atmosphere of artful pretensions. Tychy is good for bike riders but nothing much else really. Still, despite all this, the paintings were interesting to finally see live in the flesh after 20 years of seeing them online and in books. Like all great art, you need the actual art in front of you. It pops.

Here are a few pictures of the paintings from the exhibition of Beksiński. The more colourful ones are from the 1970s. Whitish ones from 1990s and sometimes 2000-2005. Happy Journeys!
