A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit an art museum in Warsaw, which was featuring the art of Zygmunt Zaradkiewicz, a Polish satirical cartoonist. Unless you’re an artist or super into art (I fall into neither category), you have probably never heard of Zaradkiewicz. I most certainty had not. After visiting his gallery however, I must say that I am absolutely fascinated with his work.  The thing that made his art so attractive to me is the fact that they overtly display messages that are hard to ascertain. In other words, while Zaradkiewicz makes the fact that he is trying to convey a message in each painting extremely obvious, he doesn’t make the message easy for viewers to understand. Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting a couple photographs of some of Zaradikewicz’s work. I have my own theories as to what message he is trying to convey in each of the paintings, but I would welcome your own interpretations as well. Let’s start with this one:
