Damian Lechoszest, “Daily Bread,” oil, 18 x 20 inches

He’s exhibited in countries across Europe, including the Czech Republic, Germany, Russia, Great Britain, Ireland, France, and his native Poland, but never in the United States, until now.

The first one-man show for Polish artist Damian Lechoszest in the United States has landed at a fitting venue: InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, this spring. On view through May 5 through the end of the month, “Traditions” features a range of outstanding works by the artist that undoubtedly highlight his uncanny ability to harness subtle effects and phenomena of light.

Using feathery, expressive strokes of the brush, Lechoszest “portrays his subjects with unusual insight and analytical attitude,” the gallery writes. “He strives to record and immortalize the disappearing Polish folk traditions of his native land. An aspiring artist at a very early age, teachers and mentors from throughout his life have recognized a special quality in Lechoszest, with their tutelage and encouragement contributing to the artist’s passion for his profession. Lechoszest is the consummate student, devouring books about the human form and theoretical fundamentals of art then pouring what he has learned into his artwork. His brushwork is fitting and in perfect harmony with the old-world subjects and figurative works he so masterfully delivers.”
