Leszek Piotrowski "Lesstro" was born December 19, 1984, in Gdynia, Poland. He graduated from the European Academy of Arts in Warsaw in 2009 with a master's degree in painting, a diploma with highest marks, under the guidance of Prof. Franciszek Starowieyski who is a distinguished Polish painter.
Lesstro's paintings are classical realism. There are historical, genre scenes, portraits, horses, female nudes, landscapes and drawings among his artworks. He feels best by creating very large scale paintings. By examining his paintings, we find universality and vitality of great classical art. The technique and subjects of his paintings and drawings are inspired by the old masters. However, his work is not a result of blind imitation or deliberate artistic intention but is a sign of an unusual artistic instinct of this very young painter who has just started his professional career.
