|Zachęta – National Gallery of Art presents the first individual exhibition in Poland of the work of Victor Man – the Romanian painter, recently named Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year 2014. Born in Cluj in 1974, he is equally inspired by the ancient and the modern. In his work he concentrates on the development of an autonomous iconography in which frequent literary references intermingle with his own biography. Literature and art history, collective memory and personal experience are the elements woven together by the artist into a non-linear story where distinctions between present and past, fiction, imagination, and reality are abolished.|
After Wangechi Mutu (2010), Yto Barrada (2011), Roman Ondák (2012), and Imran Qureshi (2013), Victor Man is Deutsche Bank’s fifth Artist of the Year.
