Radek Szlaga was born in 1979 in Poland. He lives and works in Warsow. He is represented by Leto gallery in Warsaw.
Radek Szlaga is a teller of the stories of his post generation. Modernism, rock, structuralism, colonialism… everything which could fall, fell, and passed not without consequences. The artist became a witness of irrevocable changes and an author of the tales of a new generation that emerged on the ruins of old separations and identities. Divided between an anthropological need for mythical and founding narrations and the disruptive forces of contemporary visuality, Szlaga developed a hyper-textual language that continues to intrigue and question the relationship between the traditional medium of painting and themore recent possibilities of a digitally and technologically wide-world.
