On the initiative of the Starmach Gallery, the Sejm of the Republic of Poland hailed 2023 as Year of Jerzy Nowosielski. The official celebrations kick off on 17 January with the exhibition Jerzy Nowosielski’s Studio prepared by the gallery. It recalls the interiors he occupied in Łódź and Kraków, and explores his way of thinking about creative work and the distinctive interior arrangement of his living space to fit around the artistic studio.

Painting, theoretical thought, theology, art pedagogy and art promotion were just some fields in which Jerzy Nowosielski exceeded. After the Second World War, he studied at the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, later returning as a lecturer (1967–1993). He was a member of the Young Artists’ Group between 1945 and 1949, and in 1957 he became one of the founder members of the acclaimed 2nd Kraków Group. He wrote extensively about art and faith, and created polychromes for numerous sacral buildings of various Christian denominations. His secular writings explored the achievements of avantgarde art and Byzantine painting traditions. He frequently reached for geometric abstractions, female nudes and landscapes. His art is widely regarded as unique, intertwining the sacrum and profanum spheres in his own way.
