Art of Reflection

Sixty original drawings by Stasys Eidrigevicius are on display at the museum in Koszalin in northern Poland. The drawings were published in Polityka magazine 1984-1990. Alongside the pictures, the exhibition features a selection of Polityka pages with black-and-white drawings.

The drawings were printed as an independent commentary on current affairs. They were seldom used to illustrate articles. Stasys typically approaches his subject matter with more reflection than humor. He puts his instantly recognizable characters, with potato-shaped heads, in grotesque rather than satirical settings and situations.

The exhibition in Koszalin also features movie and theater posters by Stasys. They are colorful works employing diverse techniques, from pastels to photography and tempera, and combinations of those. "Drawings are an important component of my creative output," Stasys has said. "I make a lot of sketches and have a sketchbook with me wherever I go."

Eidrigevicius, 60, is a versatile visual artist, sculptor and performance artist. He produces posters, illustrations and bookplates using oils, pastels and tempera.

Museum in Koszalin, 37-39 Młyńska St., open until Sept. 13
