Zygmunt Turkiewicz was a Polish painter and graphic artist prominent throughout the 20th Century. He graduated from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 1934.
Dealing with immigration and identity Turkiewicz’s graphic style included many graffiti paintings, gouaches, frescos and collages. His unique style combines thick and complex paint textures with softened abstract compositions. Strikingly reminiscent of religious stained glass windows his vibrant colour palette gives the work a strange optimism.
