Wilhelm Sasnal

Wilhelm Sasnal was born in 1972 in Tarnów, Poland. In the 1990s, he studied architecture and later painting at the Academy of Fine Art in Krakow. Wilhelm Sasnal works principally in photography and painting. He appropriates elements from both the history of art and photo-journalism, mixing high and low culture. His works are a free play of styles, modes of representation, techniques and media, which at the same time maintain a firm connection with tradition. Wilhelm Sasnal’s work reflects his powerful ability to observe the world around him, and give life to a visual repertory of inspirations and ideas from music, cinema, politics and current affairs.
