Leon TarasewiczBORN 1957, Waliły na Białostocczyźnie
He debuted in 1984 with an exhibition at Warsaw’s Foksal Gallery, with which he remains associated to this day. In his work, he firmly rejects all allusiveness, avoiding the painterly “literature” and leaving his paintings untitled. In recent years, he has been creating “total” paintings, artistic environments that claim the entire exhibition space. He is a graduate of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree in the studio of Prof. Tadeusz Dominik (1984). Since 1996, he has run a painting studio at his alma mater. He represented Poland at the 49th Venice Biennale. Laureate of the Paszport Polityki award(2000), the Jan Cybis Prize (2000), and the Nowosielski Foundation Prize.
