Julian Stanczak 1928–2017

Born in Borowinca, Poland in 1928, Julian Stanczak’s early life was wrought with hardship. At the beginning of World War II, Stanczak was forced into a Siberian Labor camp where he lost the use of his right arm. His family fled to Tehran, where he and his father joined the exiled Polish army, Stanczak was just 14 at the time. His teenage years were spent in a Polish refugee camp in Uganda where the young artist learned to write and paint using his left hand. In Uganda, Stanczak was profoundly impacted by the grandeur of nature - the light and colors of the African sunsets and the abundant “visual energy”.
