Zdzisław Beksiński

Feb 24, 1929 - Feb 21, 2005

Zdzisław Beksiński was a Polish painter, photographer and sculptor specializing in the field of dystopian surrealism.
Beksiński made his paintings and drawings in what he called either a Baroque or a Gothic manner. His creations were made mainly in two periods. The first period of work is generally considered to contain expressionistic color, with a strong style of "utopian realism" and surreal architecture, like a doomsday scenario. The second period contained more abstract style, with the main features of formalism.
Beksiński was stabbed to death at his Warsaw apartment on February 2005, by a 19-year-old acquaintance from Wołomin, reportedly because he refused to lend the teenager money.
