Pawel Kuczynski, while not a household name in the USA, has won hundreds of awards in Europe for his incredible illustrations that comment on social, economic, and political issues. And those comments are made with a razor-sharp tongue. A popular subject for his work - Facebook - is a real conversation starter when hung on the wall of your home. But he doesn't stop at poking the popular social media platform. His pure artistic talent is undisputed and his work is vaguely reminiscent of the pointillism of George Seurat. But it's deeper than that. He's a thinking man, and he often doesn't like what he sees. His point is often piercing. And a few of his pieces, while brilliant and still quite subtle, are too disturbing to hang in our opinion. And why is that? Because they are too true. The truth is often disturbing. And it is the responsibility of our artists and writers to tell that truth in a way that appeals to our finer senses. Our sense of justice, our sense of beauty, our sense of humanity. There's art, and then there's art. You don't need anything more on a wall than a Kuczynski to really make a statement. Fashion or political.
