Curated by Edinburgh’s Graystone Gallery, a solo show at Edinburgh’s Kimpton Hotel showcases painter Kris Cieslak’s ‘stripism’ style, based on his observations of the body and interpersonal relations. He says, ‘I focus primarily on the constant striving for perfection, both physical and spiritual, the beauty of the body, eroticism and on capturing the variety of emotions hidden in every human being.’

Polish-born and now resident in London, Cieslak has exhibited in London, Paris, Rome, Milan and Warsaw. His style not only alludes to the Pop Art era, but also explores the illusion of describing sculptural form with linear variations.

Kris will be conducting private tours of the exhibition on 29th and 30th May.
