The exhibition, whose vernissage took place on 13 June, presents the author's original works from 1968-1970, from the period of his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk (then the State Higher School of Fine Arts), which have recently been unexpectedly recovered. Also on view are the professor's most recent drawings and sketches (2010-2022), collected in two cycles - 'Rhythm' and 'Animalism'.
The exhibition is held under the patronage of the Rector of ZUT in Szczecin, Professor Jacek Wróbel. The works can be viewed until 14 July.
