schema:description"Wilhelm Sasnal is one of the most celebrated artists to emerge from Eastern Europe in the twenty-first century. His practice embraces drawing, film, comics (his strips are regularly published in Machina and Przekroj, two Polish periodicals) and, above all, painting. Prolific, varied and deliberately unclassifiable, Sasnal channels the enigma of our contemporary image-based society. For him, 'art is largely a mystery [that] touches upon the invisible, the unnamed.' His painting draws together Pop, photorealism, abstraction, minimalism and photorealism to describe both banal and enchanted details of day-to-day reality, placing diverse subjects on a plane of equality. His key subjects, however, which he returns to again and again, are the possibilities and limits of representation. In his work, material and image swap places, crossing and recrossing the border between depiction and abstraction, often several times in a single canvas. Sasnal was awarded the Vincent Van Gogh Prize in 2006, and his work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at major museums across Europe, including the Kunsthalle Zurich, the Frankfurter Kunstverein and the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst (MuHKA) in Antwerp. An exhibition of his work will open at London's Whitechapel Gallery in October 2011."@en
