They don't know why, but they keep doing it

Born 1979, lives and works in Warsaw, Poland

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.
