My name is Kamil Śliwiński, I am 31 years old, I live in Warsaw, Poland, I have been professionally involved in digital marketing for couple years, and after hours of my regular work, for over 4 years I run quite an unconventional initiative called "Bez tytułu / Untitled" dedicated to the outstanding Polish artist - Zdzisław Beksiński.

Out of great passion for Master's art, for the sake of remembrance of his extraordinary art and as well for a worthy place for the artist in Warsaw - the city where he lived and died tragically in 2005. (Wikipedia).



All my activities dedicated to Beksiński's legacy you can find on social profiles:

https://www.facebook.com/beksinski/ - over 105k fans,
https://www.facebook.com/zdzislawbeksinski/ - over 447k fans,
https://www.instagram.com/beksinski/ - over 47k followers,
https://twitter.com/art_beksinski - over 2k followers.

My daily work on these profiles "Bez tytułu / Untitled" is:

  • discovering and presenting the greatness of Zdzisław Beksiński's art on the web in the best available reproduction quality,
  • cataloging of all available materials for later presentation,
  • creating and translating publications and articles to promote the artist's work,
  • informing about events related to the artist's work,
  • promoting young artists who are inspired by the Beksiński's art,
  • reliable reviews of publications dedicated to the artist,
  • video streams (including live coverage) from permanent galleries and temporary exhibitions,
  • translation of all materials into Polish/English,
  • organizing meetings of the artist's fans in Poland.

All activities are undertaken with the consent of The Historical Museum in Sanok, which is the sole heir of Zdzisław Beksiński and the rightful copyright holder for his whole art legacy.
 

ALREADY DONE

My initiative focuses on online activities, but is not limited to them. In fact, the social profiles that I run are a kind of diary dedicated to Zdzisław Beksiński, on which I always try to show everything that the artist left us without unnecessary narrative, focusing mostly on art and less on the private life of the Beksiński family. Over the years I haven't had a day without a Master, without even one message from his fans from around the world, a short conversation in the comments, a "new" work discovered in the archives of a gallery or auction house or another extraordinary work inspired by this unique art. I managed to organize several meetings of the artist's fans, which are the best proof that there are real people behind this online community who want to share their passion for art with each other.

  One of the meetings with Beksiński's fans, Sanok, 2018.

For the last 4 years I have had the opportunity to contact and cooperate many times with many people and institutions associated with Zdzisław Beksiński - first of all with Mr. Wiesław Banach and the staff at The Museum of History in Sanok, Mr. Janusz and Mrs Ewa Barycki from the Beksiński Foundation, but initially also with Mr Piotr Dmochowski - a former artist's dealer who live in Paris, France, which was somehow an inspiration for my initiative (unfortunately I don't have contact with him anymore - but I encourage you to visit  Mr. Dmochowski's website).
 

WHY PATREON?

Because of some of Beksiński's fans from the community gathered around the initiative "Bez tytułu / Untitled" who persuaded me to do this. A few weeks ago, in the moment of doubt, I decided to take a short break from all the activities on the web - primarily to think about whether my actions still have some sense, and if so, in what form to continue them.

I am not an employee of any cultural institution or non-governmental organization, I do not receive any remuneration or grants for my activities, I do not sell reproductions, books or gadgets related to the works of Zdzisław Beksiński - still, I would like to continue to promote the artist's work in Poland and around the world and pursue earlier plans. It is connected with the amount of work, time, but also money. Knowing Polish realities, it's really hard for me to believe that this type of work (this is probably the first such idea not only on the Polish Internet) can become a regular job, but on the other hand many creators and bloggers are constantly supported by their readers / patrons on such level that allows them to change their passion into a full-fledged work - those present at Patreon are the best example of this.

So I decided to try and ask for support from the people, whom I managed to organize into a great community gathered around the profiles I run. If you decide to support my initiative to promote the work of this extraordinary artist, I will be eternally grateful - for every, even the smallest support, I want to THANK YOU!

But that's not all ... At specific support thresholds, I have specified how I can repay you for your trust. Below you will also find the main goals that I would like to allocate to the funds obtained from Patronite.
 

MAIN GOALS?

  • Current activity aimed at presenting and discovering the work of Zdzisław Beksiński, buying albums and licenses for the use of artist's works, photos, scanning and processing of obtained materials
  • Fan meetings in the Master's galleries, joint sightseeing, discussions
  • Meetings with people associated with Zdzisław Beksiński
  • Beginning work on a complete virtual collection of works by Zdzisław Beksiński as the website
  • The beginning of work by creating a mural by Zdzisław Beksiński in Warsaw
