The wealth of Polish culture goes far beyond the most famous names of composers (Frederic Chopin, Krzysztof Penderecki), Nobel Prize Laureates for Literature (Wisława Szymborska, Czesław Miłosz) or renowned filmmakers (Andrzej Wajda, Krzysztof Kieślowski).
These artists have shaped our sensitivity and our way of perceiving reality. This heritage has a considerable impact on younger generations of artists, who are an expression of creative potential of Polish society and a demonstration of its intellectual richness and vivacity.
Their artworks reach high prices at international auctions (Wilhelm Sasnal, Mirosław Bałka) and are exhibited in world top galleries, their CDs establish new trends in jazz and electronic music (Mateusz Kołakowski, Jacek Sienkiewicz, Włodek Pawlik), and their theatrical performances win prestigious awards at theatre festivals (Krzysztof Warlikowski, Mariusz Treliński).
