Polish painter Jerzy Nowosielski died on 21st February 2011 at the age of 88. He was one of the most well-known contemporary painters, illustrators and designers in Poland. He was famous for his religious paintings - polychromes, wall paintings, iconostases - as well as female nudes, portraits, landscapes, still life and abstract pictures. His works were inspired by the Byzantine style - he was a philosopher and theologian of the Orthodox Church.
In 1996 he and his wife Zofia set up the Nowosielski Foundation whose aim is to support and give awards to young, promising artists.
When I saw his wall paintings in the parish church in Wesoła I was really impressed. They are great.
