Today I want to share with you one of my favourites painters – Piotr Potworowski. He was born in 1898 in Poland. During II WW he left to Sweden and later to Great Britain. He spent also a lot of time travelling in southern Europe – Spain, Italy and France. He died in 1962 in Poland.

I love his paintings mostly because of beautiful color combinations which create abstract landscapes. If you were able to see his work in person you probably noticed that his paintings look very soft, like a soft fabric (I have no idea why…), and some of them have collage elements applied like pieces of bags, fishing nets or tea towels (for example the one below).
