ShortCut I
RADEK SZLAGA | NEUE BILDER

A happy new year for young artists and young collectors.

The first solo-show of a non-Asian artist in the gallery is dedicated to the polish artist Radek Szlaga.
Miriam Vlaming, Micha Ullman and Albert Oehlen (in Beijing) will follow later this year.

After studies in Zielona Gora the art academy of Poznan, Radek Szlaga (29) received several grants, worked as an artist assistant in London and now resides in his studio in Poznan, where he teaches as a minor lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts.

His manner is of a free-style-painting, violent and fresh, he combines autobiographical aspects, prejudices, Polish History and icons of western consumerism.

'You can't say he is afraid to use bright colours and in a rather disrespectful way he uses polish Folklore, Street Art, Trash and Fine Arts in a similar manner.' 'art' magazine stated in the January issue 09.

In his recent works which are presented in this show, he plays in an intelligent and humorous way with polish everyday life, the art world and the ideas of a young generation of intellectuals on western culture.

He deconstructs and reassembles images of the mass-media in a new context and finds thrilling titles for his creations like: 'All Done Wrong', 'Russians Control the Weather' or 'Fake Fauna II'; in the latter again he switches the meaning; the trophies of this British Hunter are fake, they are the artist's ones, who gathered images of animals from the press and internet.

Please enjoy - as we do - this new talent and extraordinary artist.
