Above: The Kiss. Read more about the artist below.
Julius Lewandowski evokes a dark and romantic past that Christopher Isherwood might have recognized. His work — reminiscent of the German painters Otto Dix, George Grosz, and Max Beckmann — is erotic and presents an anxious view of society. It is as if a treasure trove of artwork not destroyed by the Nazis came to light.
Born in Warsaw in 1977, Julius is self-taught, and has been exhibiting all over Europe: Showcase Richmix Gallery, Brthnal Green, London (April 2011), Poland Erotic Art - Night of Museums in Krakow (May 2011), Modern Fine Art International Artists Group Exhibition, Westbank Gallery, London (June 2011).
