The ¦l±skie Museum in Katowice in Silesia province is hosting an exhibition of works by Zdzisław Nitka as part of the Lower Silesian Art Festival. The exhibition spans 21 years of Nitka's creative output, juxtaposing works from recent years against his early achievements.

Nitka was born in 1962 in Oborniki ¦l±skie. He studied at the State Higher School of Visual Arts (PWSSP) in Wrocław, where he graduated from the department of painting in 1987. He teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP), formerly the PWSSP. Together with his wife, painter Jolanta Nikt, he founded the private Expressionist Museum in Oborniki ¦l±skie in 1997.

Nitka's work occupies a niche between prewar expressionism and the so-called transavantgarde neo-expressionistic movement of the 1980s, which deliberately emphasizes its links with tradition. The artist's colorful, synthetic compositions are inspired by such masters as the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and outstanding German expressionist Ernst Kirchner.

Katowice, ¦l±skie Museum, 3 Wojciecha Korfantego Ave., through Nov. 30
