February 2024: Zbigniew Has Passed Away

A note from Eva:

I am heartbroken to share that my husband Zbigniew Kupczynski passed peacefully at home on Sunday, February 18 at the age of 95. He lived long and fully, sharing his love of life and colour with many art lovers and collectors around the world for more then seven decades. Painting was his passion and color was his music. He also liked to play guitar, singing his own songs and writing poetry. He will be sorely missed by his family, children and grandchildren.

Zbigniew Kupczynski (born November 28, 1928) is a Polish-Canadian abstract expressionist artist known for his colorful portrait paintings of celebrities and children. His work has been the subject of hundreds of exhibitions throughout Europe, North America, Australia and Japan since the 1950s. Today, Kupczynski’s works are held in private and corporate collections worldwide, including the estates of former US President Richard Nixon and Pope John Paul II.

The artist, now in his 90’s and still busy at work.

Described as “one of the wild boys of Polish art” by Harold Schonberg of The New York Times, many of Kupczynski’s portrait paintings are characterised by his unique personal style, use of bright colors on canvas, and trademark mini-scenes on the accentuated noses of his subjects.

Canadian Polish Congress Honour
Zbigniew was honoured to have been featured by the Canadian Polish Congress in their Amazing People profiles.

Here is an excerpt from the Canadian Polish Congress visit to our home:

On  November 28, 2018 the artist celebrated his 90th birthday. What an interesting and creative life. Zbigniew shares with us today the stories from his life and his art. At 90 years young… Zbigniew is as busy as before creating his paintings and poems. Full of energy and good humour.  He even sang for us a christmas song that he has written recently.
