Radek is one of the most interesting and productive young painters from Poland.
He introduces to his painting marginal topics and trash baroque aesthetics.
Szlaga’s grotesque universe is a world without boundaries between the aesthetic
and historical orders so anything can happen here – and a lot happens indeed.
In Szlaga’s art, the simplicity of naive painting meets the philosophy of Jean Bau-
drillard, the magical thinking of Carlos Castaneda, and a topos of the total repro-
duction of reality from Borges’s stories.
Since 2007 he has been a member of the artistic group Panerstwo.
