Kazimierz Jakubiak
62, artistic name Jakub Kasteya. He paints watercolours, does drawings and prints, usually applying linocut and monotype techniques. He has had three individual shows and participated in many exlibris (?) exhibitions in Poland and abroad. In 1995 he won the Minister of Culture and Arts' Award 1st Prize for his artistic achievements and a year later he received the 1st Prize at the 4th International Biennial of Disabled Peoples' Arts in Cracow. As an artist he speaks from the particular position of a suffering man, this can be seen most clearly in his self-portraits. In his other works he shows the charm and beauty of women.
