Piotr Uklański, a contemporary Polish-American artist born in 1968, has been creating art since the mid-1990s, exploring themes of spectacle, cliché, and modern art tropes. His work often involves both embracing and subverting well-known, sometimes sentimental subjects. His art has been showcased at prominent institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zurich, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, Uklański studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and photography at Cooper Union in New York. Emerging on the New York art scene in the mid-1990s, he gained recognition for works like "Untitled (Dance Floor)," blending minimalism with popular entertainment. Operating between New York and Warsaw, Uklański employs various media, including sculpture, photography, collage, performance, and film, drawing on diverse cultural references.
