As Featured At The 2020 Whistler Film Festival
The world premier of a documentary on Zbigniew and Eva is showing on Dec. 9th, 2020. The Festival is “virtual” this year and we hope you will enjoy the 30 minute film The Painter From Nowhere playing during the Festival. Jan. 2021 Update: Our documentary was accepted to appear at the Montreal Film Festival in March 2021.
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.
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.
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.
