Krzysztof Gawronkiewicz,  Chair in Hell

Krzysztof Gawronkiewicz (b. 1969) is a comic artist, illustrator and painter. He is one of the three most important contemporary Polish comic artist (along with Przemyslaw Truściński and Jakub Rebelka, whose monographic exhibitions were held in recent years by the BWA in Jelenia Góra). Gawronkiewicz's comic strips include Achtung Zelig (screenplay by Krystian Rosenberg), Tempest (screenplay by Maciej Parowski), Mikropolis (screenplay by Dennis Wojda (in 2002 Canal + showed a documentary about the making of Mikropolis) and Cunning Investigation by Otto and Watson (screenlay by Grzegorz Janusz, a series). His work Mohair Dream brought Krzysztof Gawronkiewicz nomination for the Pegasus Award in 2003 in the category of Art (along with Wilhelm Sasnal and Dorothy Nieznalska). He is the only Polish draughtsman who sells the licences for his drawings to Belgium and France - the largest European market for comic books. One of his works commissioned by Belgian publishers was a comic book devoted to the Warsaw Uprising (L'insurrection. Avant l'orage, screenplay by Marzena Sowa). It had taken him five years to complete the work which had its premiere in August 2014 in Belgium and France, followed by Poland in October the same year, where it was published by Kultura Gniewu as Powstanie. Za dzień, za dwa (Uprising, In a day or Two, reference to a wartime song).
