During a funeral mass in Warsaw, Culture Minister Piotr Gliński said Dwurnik was "extremely talented; he brought freshness and originality to contemporary Polish art.”

Dwurnik’s ashes were to be laid to rest in Warsaw’s Powązki Military Cemetery after the funeral mass.

Dwurnik was a key figure in Polish contemporary art and a prolific artist who left behind a legacy of some 5,000 paintings and 10,000 drawings.

He came to prominence in the 1960s after painting a series of urban landscapes.

Seemingly bird's-eye views of some of the most iconic squares and streets in Poland and around the world, they were, in fact, a mix of perspectives and included references to well-researched historical, political and social nuances.
