About artist:

Born in 1944 in Warsaw. From 1968 to 1974 was studing on the Graphic Designs Department at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In 1974 he got a diploma with honours for the science fiction picture series. Practices painting and drawing. The brand-new artist's passion is pastel. He exhibits quite rarely, because, as he says, his output still is not what is worth to be shown in public.
Jan Sumiga debuted in 1975 participating in group exhibition called "XIV debiutem absolwentów ASP" (XIV - debut of graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts) in Warsaw. From 1976 to 1977 he participated in exhibitions of Young Artists' Group in Warsaw. His foreign debut was "Sport in Art" Biennial in 1977, Barcelona. First individual foreign exhibition was in Depolma Galerie, Dusseldor, in 1979. Jan Sumiga's works were exhibited for example in: Warsaw (BWA 1979, "Art." Gallery 1980, "Koszykowa" Gallery 1981, "Znak" Gallery 1989), New York (Marie Pellicone Gallery 1982), Leverkusen (1889). Last great individual exhibition is a show in "Ars-Hit" Galery in 1993.
Died in 2005.
