Adrian Wiszniewski (born in Glasgow, 1958) remains best known as one of the ‘New Glasgow Boys’, who shot to prominence in the mid-1980s, with huge exuberant figure paintings, as redolent of fantasy and myth as they were attuned to the workings of contemporary thought and everyday life.
Acquisitions by the Tate in 1985 and the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1986, led to his work being acquired by many public collections in the UK and internationally.
He has brought the same creative energy of his paintings to printmaking, sculpture, installations, furniture and interior design and writing, regarding the exploration of new media as a central part of the art of communicating fresh ideas.
Impossible to predict, his work breaks new ground when least expected, whilst always retaining it’s unique and unmistakeable graphic stamp.
