Wilhelm Sasnal is recognized by many critics as the leading painter of his generation.
His works is held in the permanent collections of many important museums and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Tate Modern, London.
Wilhelm Sasnal is a contemporary Polish artist, best known for his atmospheric paintings and short films derived from mass media, daily life, and art history. Comparable to the work of Luc Tuymans, Sasnal’s use of muted and photo-like hues hint at sinister undertones while maintaining an aura of mystery. For HENZEL STUDIO, Sasnal adapted a pencil drawing of outlines onto graph paper into the media at hand. Variable pile heights of the graphite lines create a carved effect, whereas enhanced composition of silk in the graphed areas create contrast and nuance.
