Jerzy Jurry Zielinski

Born in a village not far from Paradyz (1943), he died in Warsaw in circumstances that remain vague. He was 37 years old. His pictures have been called “road signs of political existence in the People’s Republic”. He was the only Polish painter to take up the Pop Art style during the 1960s and 1970s and an ardent critic of the communist regime. In 1965 "Jurry" founded the Neo Neo Neo artists collective, together with Jan Dobkowski. In 1968 he received his Master`s Diploma from the Warsaw Fine Art Academy (Jan Cybis`s Studio).

Jurry and Dobkowski swiftly went their separate ways. Jurry became a political artist, walking a fine line. He was an uncompromising critic of the People’s Republic, communism and Sovietism. His simple, poster-like style taken from the language of propaganda spoke of the falsified history and lack of freedom of Poland, protesting against the intervention of the Warsaw Pact armies in Czechoslovakia and the workings of censorship, deriding the 30th anniversary of the People’s Republic with a famous painting of a mouth stitched closed. He scorned hypocrisy in public life and everyday conformity.

Zderzak Gallery published an extensive monograph „Jurry. The Return of an Artist” (2010) and a vademecum book „Skromne czuwanie” (2010).
