Wilhelm Sasnal

Posted on October 18, 2010

Wilhelm Sasnal (born December 29, 1972 in Tarnów, Poland) is a Polish painter. Wilhelm Sasnal produces pencil drawings, ink drawings, photographs, videos and paintings. In his art he employs a variety of media and cultivates a non-uniform practice. Sasnal is primarily a painter. There are no limits to what he paints: More or less banal everyday objects, portraits of historical figures, views of his home town Cracow, snapshots of friends and family members and very often existing images from the internet or mass media are his starting point. Even if, over the years, one can make out a number of overarching themes, there are always new paintings that shift the emphases and connections once again. The same is true of his painting style. His approach is unpredictable and his methods range from graphic reduction and a pointedly two-dimensional , illustration-oriented style to seemingly autonomous gestures with brush and paint.
