Franciszek Sylwanowicz got his diploma in graphics, and initially etching or linocut were the main form of his works. He created real and imaginary landscapes. He made his début in Bydgoszcz in the Small Salon of Art in 1970. He started doing graphics art and designing, and since 1989, for a time, he had a conservation company. He’s always had many interests. At some point, painting began to dominate his art. Most often, Sylwanowicz paints with acrylics on plates. The themes are varied, as is the style of his works. It was suggested that we should present a sampler or review of all the creative abilities of the artist. But the space of the Kantorek gallery is too small for this type of exhibitions with such diverse matter. From a very huge set of paintings we chose eighteen for the exhibition, mainly still lifes geometric in form (inspired by Cubism), with rich, contrasting colours dominated by warm hues, influencing the expression of the presentation.
