Translation in progress

ANDRZEJ CZECZOT (b.1933-d.2012) Czeczot was best known for his illustrations and works of graphic design for prestigious Polish publications Polityka, Polska, Ty I Ja, Literatura and more. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków (studying at the academy's Katowice campus) and debuted in 1956 as a caricaturist for “Szpilka” and expanded his work to include film animations. In 1972 he received the Special Prize at the 2nd Biennale Festival of the Applied Graphics in Brno for his illustrations for book “The Good Soldier Schweick” and received the Golden Pin (Z?ota Szpilka) for excellence in illustration. He was interned in 1981 as part of the government's roundups of intellectuals and artists upon the enforcement of Martial Law. He left Poland not long after his release in 1982 and continued his work in the United States, first working for the Polish newspaper Nowy Dziennik and later for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker. He returned to Poland in the 1990s and contributed to the Polityka. In 2002 he produced a feature-length animated film titled Eden, an ironic fairy tale about the state of contemporary culture, which won him a special jury award at the 27th International Film Festival in Gdynia. Over his lifetime he made over 30 short animated films, illustrated over 200 books and designed over 450 book covers. Some of his New Yorker covers are available for sale from the Conde Nast collection.
