Biography Edward Dwurnik (1943-2018) 

Edward Dwurnik (Radzymin 1943-2018 Warsaw) studied painting, graphics, and sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where he graduated from the painting studio of Professor Eugeniusz Eibisch. In 1965, influenced by the exhibition of the naïve painter Nikifor Krynicki, he assumed a similar style in painting, which he later modified and developed.

He made 8000 pieces of art. His first artworks date back to 1966, which was his oldest and most recognisable painting series. Important series include bird’s-eye view of cityscapes, Sportsmen & Labourers.

From the 1980s, Dwurnik’s painting became expressive, dramatic, and more and more politically engaged. In the 1990s, Dwurnik painted a series that developed upon his Blue Cities, like this one. 

During his lifetime, Edward Dwurnik participated in many prestigious exhibitions of contemporary art, including documenta 7 in Kassel in 1982, the Biennale of Sydney in 1984, and Biennale de Paris in 1985. His works can be found in many institutional collections, including the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, the Schaulager in Basel and the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, the National Museum of Wasaw and of  Krakow, the National Museum among others.
