About the department

Contemporary art to some extent reflects our world today - it requires sensitivity, imagination and at first glance it is difficult to judge unequivocally. It was established at the beginning of the 20th century, and its hegemony continues until today. The current itself began with the activity of the Dadaists, i.e. the artistic and literary movement that proclaimed freedom of artistic expression and a break with all traditions. Contemporary art artists reject the accepted canons and constantly explore and discover new corners of our culture. We still find these slogans in the newest sections of the trend by undermining the accepted norms, total rebellion and experimenting with form.

Our Department of Contemporary Art organizes and conducts auctions dedicated to works of contemporary art. We are proud that we have the opportunity to contribute to its development in Poland through numerous auctions where you can buy canvases of the best Polish artists of this trend. Among those whose paintings have appeared at our auctions so far, it would be a sin not to mention the following names: Wojciech Fangor, Zdzisław Beksiński, Edward Dwurnik, Jerzy Duda-Gracz, Henryk Płóciennik, Józef Wilkoń, Leon Tarasewicz, Rafał Olbiński and Jarosław Modzelewski. They are absolutely outstanding artists, and many connoisseurs of contemporary art want their works in their collection.

Is it worth investing in works of contemporary art? Of course it is, and for at least several reasons. The first is the connection of contemporary art with today's architecture and generally understood aesthetics. Thanks to this, the works of this trend perfectly fit into modern interiors and make them unique in their own way. Secondly, contemporary art is relatively cheap, at least in relation to works from older periods. Thanks to this, you can invest small amounts, and in the future there is a good chance that these costs will be returned many times. Many people secure and diversify their capital in this way.

Contemporary art is an extremely diverse trend that includes, among others, street art, conceptualism, minimal art, op-art, pop-art, hyperrealism, arte-povera and many more. This makes it also extremely universal and everyone can find something for themselves in it. Interestingly, it is the only trend in art that evolves so dynamically. We often come across new concepts that shock art experts. Anyway, it is not surprising - the very message of contemporary art is based on shocking and searching for a new thought and form. All this makes it an inexhaustible river of inspiration for both connoisseurs and artists of the young generation.

Only the most interesting canvases of contemporary artists are displayed at our auctions. We invite you to take part in our actions. If you have any questions about the auction and the works of contemporary art themselves, please contact us.
