Targowisko Sztuki – Young arts

Several times a year an interesting and fresh visual feast takes place in Warsaw: an art market where students and ex-students (but who have left the Academy no longer than 2 years before) of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw exhibit their works. This is not only a chance to look at the youngest Warsaw art ideas, but also to buy some original works at a fair price.

The market has something for everyone: all possible materials (graphic art, paintings, handicrafts, even arty toys) and all possible types (avant-garde, abstract, still life) of art are exhibited. The degree of novelty of the ideas differs: some students paint Klimt in their own colors beautifully, some have their own surprising styles (linear paintings that almost look like they’ve been woven on canvas, huge black or gray girls sitting, Africa-influenced pictures in lurid, gaudy colors).

Remember: the idea behind the market is that it should be an opportunity to meet the artists and to chat a little bit, so make the most of it and always try to haggle over the price.

The next date of Targowisko this season is 22 October. It might be a great idea to buy already some Christmas gifts – art from Poland!
