    Go there. You will not be disappointed. One of the greatest painters of the Fantastic Realism genre. Bleeding art, really.

    IIRC Beksinski was a Holocaust survivor.
    Anyway, I've always loved his stuff. I wanted to buy a print of one of his pieces a while back but it was well out of my price range.

    I remember seeing his works some time ago. There was this (must've been fictious) story about him not having the ability to paint such things before a point in time, when he suddenly aquired it, trying to convey what he'd seen in a series of dreams or a coma or something of the sort. I've never thought much of it. Does anyone know if the T 'cross' has any added meaning, or is it just from him alone? Sounds like I'm sharing a ghost story... :eek:
