“He was an artist who responded to real life, real people… he wasn’t somebody who was obsessed with the tiny compulsions of the art”
David Lee, art writer & critic
Lenkiewicz was a maverick; a colourful character and a man who was genuinely concerned about social and domestic issues, who went through the medium of painting to express his conscience.
He didn’t paint a portrait of a vagrant or addict to just reward them with money or a meal. He genuinely cared for his subjects in a very nurturing sense.
