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.
