Mariusz Kruk, born in 1952 in Poznań, is a Polish artist working mostly in painting, but also in poetry, sculpture, object and installation. He studied painting at the University of Arts in Poznań. After completing his degree in 1982, Kruk established the artistic group Koło Klipsa, alongside Leszek Knaflewski, Krzysztof Markowski and Wojciech Kujawski. The group, active from 1983 until 1990, was one of the most important voices in Polish art of the decade and an example of combination between the expressionist tendencies and conceptual art. Mariusz Kruk left Koło Klipsa in 1987. From then on, he has worked individually. During the 1980s, his works were displayed in the famous Galeria Akumulatory 2 in Poznań or Galeria Krzysztofory in Kraków. Among the number of important solo and group shows, the "Jeune Expression" at the Parisian Grand Palais (1982) and "Metaphysical Visions Middle Europe" at Artists Space in New York (1989) were of particular importance for his artistic career. Being included in cross-sectional exhibitions of Polish art, as "Polish Painting" at Richard Demarco Gallery in Edinburgh (1986), "Horizons. 14 Polish Contemporary Artists" at Sonje Museum in Seul (1996) or "Verteidigung der Moderne Positionen der Polnischen Kunst Nach 1945" in Künzelsau (2000), Mariusz Kruk became one of the most recognized figures in Polish contemporary art.
