About the Exhibition

Szukalski: Drawings opened February 2, 2013 at Cal State Fullerton’s Begovich Gallery. Although Stanislav Szukalski was born in Poland in the 19th century he was influential in Southern California where he lived for a few decades until his death in 1987. A very short list of friends and admirers include Robert and Suzanne Williams, Rick Griffin, Jim Woodring, George DiCaprio and DiCaprio’s son, Leonardo. Robert Williams once wrote, “Szukalski fits the definition of genius, his observations, though in question, were brilliant.”

His ability to sculpt and draw is legendary. He has been featured in Juxtapoz Magazine several times and even graced the cover in 2005. The exhibition at the Cal State Fullerton, Begovich Gallery is the first exhibition to focus on his more than 14,000 surviving drawings. Many of the drawings in the exhibition have never been seen publicly.

An extensive catalog including exclusive essays and artwork specifically from the Szukalski: Drawingsexhibition will be released at a later date.
