BIOGRAPHY OF LESZEK PIOTROWSKI „LESSTRO”

About artist

Lesstro is dealing with classical realism painting. There are historical, genre scenes, portraits, horses, female nudes, landscapes and drawings among his artworks.
He feels best by creating big and very big scale paintings. By watching his paintings we find universality and vitality of great, classical art. Dash, block intuition, rich color palette and first of all chiaroscuro characterize his works. Paintings and drawings associate with the climate of old masters. However, it does not result from blind imitation or deliberate artistic intention but is a sign of an unusual artistic instinct of this very young painter, who has just started his professional career.

Although very young the artist has already achieved significant success at the international art scene.
Still being the student ( in June 2009 ) Lesstro has got his first, world-wide success - he got Golden Trophy Award at World’s Nude Show in Hong Kong.
His paintings were displayed among world renowned artists from 19th century. The Gallery bought six of his paintings. ( Link to Baoqu Tang : www.baoqutang.com-events-previous events-2009 ) .
His artworks were shown within : “ Body Language “ and “ Romantic Collection of Western Paintings “ exhibitions by Baoqu Tang Gallery of Art in Hong Kong in 2009.

Lesstro’s art has also been very highly appreciated in Europe and the USA.
He participated in International Painting Competition “ Natale di Roma “ in Italy for 3 times :
in 2009, 2010, 2011. He was awarded with First Prizes in 2009 and 2010. In 2011 he got Prize of the Jury President. He got special greetings from Jury President – famous Italian painter and friend of Picasso – Mr. Bruno Caruso.
