Remembering Alfred Lenica
May 14, 2008   
Article's tools:

The works of Alfred Lenica from various periods can be seen at the Art NEW Media Gallery in Warsaw.

Lenica was born in 1899 in Pabianice, near ŁódĽ, and died in 1977 in Warsaw. Between 1925 and 1928 he studied drawing and painting at the private studios of Artur Hannytkiewicz and Piotr Kubowicz in Poznań. In the 1930s he produced figurative paintings in Cubist style. Later he was influenced by surrealism. After his move to Poznań, in 1947 Lenica co-founded the avant-garde group 4F+R (standing for paint, form, fantasy, texture and realism).

In 1950 he moved to Warsaw. In 1958 he created his own style, with characteristic whirling patches, colorful and calligraphic forms, which dynamically filled the painting's surface. The style became the artist's trademark until the end of his life.
