Leszek Skurski was born in Danzig, Poland in 1973 and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. In 1995 he was awarded with the Art Prize of the Ministry of Culture and Art of Poland. The artist has lived and worked in Fulda since 1999. All works by Leszek Skurski’s are united by their breadth and the usually very limited range of colors. The brush style and the composition of the picture itself creates a special surface structure and an impressive depth effect. The pictorial figures remain anonymous due to their shadowy representation. The reduced figurative representation asks for the viewer’s imagination.
