Aargh! He was still painting, still going strong at 76. It is indeed a tragedy. I've been a fan of his for years and years.
His digital work was as amazing as his paintings, too..considering computers didn't even exist during most of his life.

He was doing digital too ?????????

First Hunter S. Thompson, now him? What the hell is going on? My favorite figures in the arts, dropping like flies... sad news.

Seriously, why are all these artists getting murdered all of a sudden?
February 24th, 2005, 06:35 PM

February 25th, 2005, 12:24 AM
Damn, thats horrible. Did they ever find the guy that did it? or WHY someone would do this?
February 25th, 2005, 02:47 PM
I'm saddend. I hope it isn't some ugly reason - but whatever his personal life, he was a great painter.
February 26th, 2005, 05:36 AM
I just ordered a book on his stuff two weeks ago. Damn....just.....damn. I'm extremely disapointed now. Of all the biomorphic/ fantastic realist artists he was one of, if not the, best. :nohope:

Its always sad when a amazing artist dies. Its not like loosing a family member or a friend but...argh...cant put it in words...We are all artists or claiming to be one and he was one of the brightest stars among us and it hurts to loose such a person...even if most of the people in this forum never knew him personally (including me) :(
Hope the Police isn`t lazy and find his murderer soon

fuck fuck fuck!!!!!

Sad day indeed not only for his fans or art lovers but for all of us Poles - one of our most incredibly talented and respected artist ever and certainly one of the greatest of the contemporary ones.
Killed by a most incredibly stupid, F**KING asshole. A tiny dick-brained nineteen year old - son of his neighbour - who probably didn't realise who is he killing. And for what ? Two lousy digital cameras - that's how much was his life worth for this asshole.
Very sad. RIP [']
PS : I don't belive that it's worth anything now or that there's any kind of proper sentence for this guy, but yes - for those of you who asked - the murderer and his 16 year old buddy are already cought and waiting for the trial.
