"The Battle of Grunwald/Ship of Fools" at Reszel Castle till 30.08.2014

"The Battle of Grunwald/Ship of Fools" is no more than an artistic work of fiction. The picture is a light and accessible creation, portraying the events and characters of contemporary Polish history, in an international context. They are little more than cartoons with a sense of humor in the genre of ‘South Park’. The concept of ‘Polish Civil War’ should be taken with a pinch of salt."
We received the art monthly Arteon 2013 Award for this painting.

However it provoked big controversy and protest from the All-Poland Committee Against Sects And Violence. Now the case is in Polish court.

Whole info on separate page about this painting: http://bitwa-podgrunwaldem.blogspot.com/

Since two years we have been tring to show "Battle" to the audience. Despite this fact we were met with a refusal everytime we have tried. All public institutions refuse us because they are afraid of scandal. The Warsaw National Museum director was intrested but program comittee didn't agree unanimously. Currently we have our third exhibition of this artwork, after receiving the award from Arteon art monthly. We are waiting for another places of exhibit, as we plan this painting to visit as much places in Poland as possible, so that every Pole has the possibility to see it - the painting showing the actual condition of his country. This refers also to the original painting of Matejko, which bought by banker Rosenblum travelled not only in Poland but also in main cities in Europe.

ACHTUNG ! New Generation of NAZI WARRIORS - " We are unstoppable "

The Krasnals . Whielki Krasnal "New Nazi Warrior / Infanta Conchita / Eurovision 2014/ from the series ' Beauty in Art'" 2014. Oil on canvas. 90 x 60 cm

 ACHTUNG ! New Generation of NAZI WARRIORS - " We are unstoppable "

The new face of dictatorship - GENDER tramples over people to get to the target. Whatever competition it was, quality has nothing to do with it. A gay, transvestite or a lesbian must win it. Once again the freedom of art is violated by reducing it to the lowest level of propaganda. People who vote are treated like cattle, the necessary black mass , being lied to that their voices have any meaning. And the competition has nothing in common with democratic principles.

As this goes on like this, we will not wait long for another Hitler, or at least Bravick.

The triumph of Conchita Wurst has nothing to do with tolerance (drag queen is not a new occurrence), but above all with the degradation of the intellectual value. The fascination of pathetic kitsch in poor execution wins, combined with the use of another opportunity for media to make provocation of gender policy and rolling another political battle. We just observe once again perfidious , instrumental treatment of art.

Culture has always been a sign of the times, and always leaves its traces . Do we face a change in the canon of beauty ? There was already Mona Lisa, then Marilyn Monroe - and now are we ready to canon of Conchita's dominance? If so, be careful on the opposite pole . History likes to repeat itself. The same country gives birth to twins - Hitler and Conchita .

Where is the line between tolerance and dictatorship ? Let us remember what Hitler did having one nucleus , and this person has real two.
One must admit Wurst – that he played the show brilliantly, perfectly executed his political task.
