Art in relation (2009)

Art passes away, even if it is immortal. To give it life, the painter Jan Niksiński (57) from Warsaw has breathed new life into it. He entitled his exhibition. “Recycling 2”. Born in the district town of Przasnysz in the Mazovian Voivodship, 100 kilometres north of Warsaw, the artist studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk from 1973 and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw from 1975.


ZWINGENBERG: Jan Niksinski assembles his paintings from used ideas, stored thoughts and memories. They show abstract symbolism, which in combination with graphic adaptation creates a visual whole. In this way, the artist opens his mental self to public access, without depriving the viewer of the possibility to get personal views. A very nice selection of his latest works can be seen at Remise until 27 December. The exhibition opened on Sunday in the presence of numerous guests.

The surface and secret (2004)

“Art begins where reality ends.” This quote aptly describes the works of Polish painter Jan Niksinski. The Art-Galerie an der Stadtkirche is currently exhibiting his abstract works. These highly reduced, minimalist works of art, which can be seen until Christmas, radiate something mysterious and unusual beauty.

Dear art lovers, dear Jan!

      For many years, I successfully objected to giving speeches on my exhibitions because I believed that pictures can’t be explained, that they can only be experienced. They should speak for themselves, and words, in my opinion, spoil everything. It would have never crossed my mind that one day I would be working on a speech, that I would desire to explain another painter’s pictures to the viewer, that I would dare to take this challenge.

Niksinski now also paints in colour (2000)

“For me, art is the only thing that makes it interesting to live and work in our reality,” says Jan Niksinski (48). A graduate of the art academies in Gdansk and Warsaw, he has been working as a freelance artist since 1978.

Born on 28 May 1952 in Przasnysz, Poland. He studied art education and pedagogy at the University of Gdansk from 1972-73.
