Jarosław Modzelewski (born 1955)

Jarosław Modzelewski – outstanding Polish painter, founder in 1983 (with other Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts artists: Ryszard Grzyb, Paweł Kowalewski, Włodzimierz Pawlak, and Ryszard Woźniak) of the artistic collective Gruppa. Gruppa was described as being ‘gaudy’, and its ‘wild’ practice was a protest not only against the bleak reality of the martial law, but also against the blandness of post-avantgarde art that had just been entering a phase of insipid academism. Currently all Gruppa members work and exhibit on their own.
