Painting of John Szczepkowski is slightly theatrical spectacle where we’re the audience, as he says. He is inspired by death and love. He perceives Sanok as a cover under which these two themes occur. Colors and manner in which he paints create an effect silicon like world. Very interesting and sophisticated style.
