On the Edge - Witold K.

Poland2022documentary83'Panorama polskiego dokumentu (2023)

Witold Kaczanowski is one of Poland's best-known artists, much more famous abroad than in his country of origin. He was born in Poland and spent his childhood under German occupation. Since 1980 he has lived and worked in the USA, where his art attracted numerous admirers and collectors. Due to a long period of emigration, many exhibitions and successes, his original painting style is recognised globally. Witold K.’s life and work are marked by loss – the artist lost his mother early, experienced the horrors of World War II and left his homeland as a young man.
