Polish Art Now, an art exhibition that is showcased in London’s Saatchi Gallery for six days only, aims to provide an introduction to art made in Poland. Presenting a selection of contemporary and modern Polish art for the first time in the UK, Abbey House, which is founded in 2010 to provide a platform for the growing artist community in Warsaw, gives Saatchi’s visitors a chance to see paintings as well as sculpture and performance work.

Amongst the works presented there are paintings of such renowned artists like Marek Niemirski reproducing fingerprints of various artists, but also the newest additions to the Polish art market, such as creations by fresh graduates, like Agata Kleczkowska’s unique, kitschy paintings.
