Dark Vision

Dark, visionary paintings with a timeless quality by contemporary Romanian artist Victor Man are on show at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

This is Man’s first individual exhibition in Poland. He is regarded as one of the world’s leading contemporary artists. His pictures, painted in dimmed colors, deal with both the past and the present with references to literature, history and facts from the artist’s own life. The recurring, distinctive motif of a faceless figure introduces a kind of existential angst and stands for an identity that’s constantly on the move with no corporeal aspect whatsoever.

The line between fiction, imagination and reality is blurred in Man’s paintings, giving a psychedelic air to the images, which are open to different interpretations.

Born in 1974 in Cluj, Romania, Man is the fifth winner of the Artist of the Year prize awarded by the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council.
