A Short Story of Humans

Satirical cartoons by Polish cartoonist, graphic artist and painter Lech Frąckowiak are on show at Warsaw’s Museum of Caricature and Cartoon Art.

The exhibition, entitled Joking, Half-Joking and Quite Seriously, delivers a solid dose of understated wit and a hint of irony. Frąckowiak focuses on human nature and while the characters in his cartoons are equipped with some props, the artist is mostly concerned with their gestures and facial expressions. Frąckowiak dissects the world around him, identifying some universal features of the human condition and uses his pens and brushes to depict these on paper. Frąckowiak has an eye for detail and a unique style. He has his own way of combining humor with contemplation of life.

His work at the Warsaw exhibition forms a short pictorial narrative about human beings, allowing viewers to discover both the most interesting and the most grotesque of human characteristics.

Frąckowiak, a graduate of the University of Arts in Poznań, has received awards at many prestigious exhibitions in Poland and abroad, including the International Cartoon Contest in Knokke-Heist, Belgium, and the Satyrykon International Exhibition in Legnica, Poland.
