Wilhelm Sasnal's art exemplifies a reaction to the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, with subject matter that draws from day-to-day realities of Poland's citizens grappling with their new capitalistic culture. The reception of his work has resulted in Sasnal's pop-star status at home - and a growing reputation abroad. In this monograph nearly one hundred colour images capture the incredible diversity of Sasnal's work: portraits of his family and friends; landscapes of his struggling country; graphic illustrations, abstractions, and hyper-real paintings. Seen together, his works suggest the overarching themes of Poland's complex and dramatic history. By combining the personal with the political, Sasnal has allowed his art to speak to audiences from beyond his country's geographic boarders while remaining true to his own experience.
