Planning Adrian’s first solo exhibition in the West End

Adrian Wiszniewski (born in Glasgow 1958) remains best known as one of the “New Glasgow Boys” who shot to prominence in the mid-1980s with huge exuberant figure paintings as redolent of fantasy and myth as they were attuned to the workings of contemporary thought and everyday life.

Acquisitions by the Tate in 1985 and the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1986 led to his work being acquired by many public collections in the UK and internationally.  Between 1986-87 he was artist in residence at the Walker Gallery, Liverpool.  Since then his work has developed in many different directions.  He has brought the same creative energy of his paintings to printmaking, sculpture, installations, furniture and interior design and writing, regarding the exploration of new media as a central part of the art of communicating fresh ideas.  Impossible to predict, his work breaks new ground when least expected, whilst always retaining its unique and unmistakeable graphic stamp…”

Adrian became known as one of “the new Glasgow Boys” in the mid 1980s.  He was one of four Glasgow School of Art graduates known for their large exuberant figurative paintings.
