Poles Apart

Artworks by Antoni Sulek.
To be offered at auction in our Antique and Interiors Sale Wednesday 8th May

Described as incredible, Antoni Sulek paintings are considered North East masterpieces.  Born in Morpeth in 1951, Sulek was the child of Polish parents, who had fled to England during the Second World War. Taking influence from his parents struggles in labour camps in Siberia; Sulek went on to paint his own life experiences into his artwork, depicting the effect his self-imposed exile from his family and his arrest and expulsion from Poland had on him.
