Price range information: Sorry none available.
Ksiazek didn’t think of himself as an Abstract painter. He thought of himself as a Constructionist painter. Ksiazek would often layer complimentary colors on top of each creating a very interesting visual effect.
Ksiazek’s style reminds me of the contemporary artist Gerhard Richter.
