THE PIONEER of computer-modified photographs Ryszard Horowitz is exhibiting around 40 of his large-format works at the Eastern Slovak Gallery in Košice.

Horowitz, a Polish artist living in the US, created the photographs between 1982 and 2000, most as posters and advertisements ordered by car and drink companies, and perfumeries.

The exhibition's curator, Bogdan Wojtowicz, said that even though Horowitz's photographs might evoke perfectionism, surrealism, pop-art, and collage, "the artist firmly stands with one foot in the 20th century and one in the 21st century, and in between is the whole artistic experience of humankind," the news agency TASR wrote. As a child, Horowitz survived the Auschwitz concentration camp and his parents were saved by Schindler's list. The exhibition will last until April 4. The gallery is situated at Hlavná 27.
