Artists of the Gallery Art: Leszek Jasiński
Born in 1962 in Warsaw. Studied at The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Graduated in 1989 under tutorage of Prof Adam Myjak.
A veristic detail and patos vanitas – in Leszek Jasiński’s sculptures there are both extreme naturalism and a Baroque religious art tradition. Clay figure moulds astound with ugliness; they wear lipstick and often have cigarette butts hanging out. Jasiński does not idealize anything. He presents the world bluntly, or even in a caricatural way with a bit of irony and a snide.
