Jakub Julian Ziolkowski’s first American solo exhibit at Hauser Wirth is a whirlpool of bursting mutant duels, psychedelic landscapes, violent decay, trash and feces.

The artist is heavily influenced by his southeast Polish hometown Zamosc – a remote Renaissance fortress turned intellectual center, marred by the horrors of Nazi occupation and now home to “a concentration of food factories.”

Exhibit “Timothy Galoty & The Dead Brains” features painting, drawings and 50 new works, some detailing the adventures of Ziolkowski’s fictional band Timothy Galoty (Timothy “Clown Pants”). Preview select works below.
