Janusz Szpyt

Janusz Szpyt was born in 1960 in Lubaczów, where he lives and works. He studied at the Faculty of Graphics in Katowice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in the studio of prof. Jerzy Duda-Gracz, and then at the Faculty of Painting of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in the studio of prof. Włodzimierz Buczek. In 1983, he co-creates the Group of Three with Piotr Naliwajko and Leszek Żegalski, also known as the “Inflated Trio”. “Quite New Wild Dadaists” – this is what they perversely called themselves – in the Bengal magazine they published, they published a manifesto in which they called for truth in art related to the quality of form, color and technique, opposing the widely prevailing painting and media trash. “We want painting to express the spirit of our times in the most individual way possible, to be a humanistic protest of thinking people against all manifestations of evil, to be a continuation of the traditions of our societies. We want to express it with painting based on the unity of composition, drawing and color, in a word PERFECT PAINTING with perfect knowledge of the workshop […] ”The numerous exhibitions organized by the Group in Poland and abroad were accompanied by an artistic ferment reflected in the radio and television press.
