Beksinski’s background as a student of architecture is apparent in this group of paintings. His technique is extremely detailed and precise. Beksinski’s paintings often have a surreal or nightmarish quality. He was stabbed to death at the age of 75.

"I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams" - Beksinski
