In his graphic works Oleś gets even deeper - they seem to be the obsevations of the reality madę through the unique slide of an electronic microscope invented by the author himself.The real is transformed into a colourful molecular world, constantly active, exuberent and pied - caught in the frame and within the boarders of our perception only for a fraction of a second. These works are a sequence of road signs which help us to move within a mysterious world of the very perception of the reality, which only now turns out to be ideał: disciplined, pure, harmonious, providing pure pleasure when being observed. It is the reality one would never want to leave. For Oleś every fragment of the reality is a sign - fortunately it is a sign that everyone can interpret in their own way. Each of his signs refers to reality - and the reality refers to the addressee, who has to develop his or her own attitude towards it: by means of the brain, intuition and emotions. According to one's needs.

Zbyszko Oleś does not respect traffic rules in art - because he knows that they do not concern him.Thus everyone can enter his world - hermetic yet friendly. In this world we are not restrained by any rules, and no driving licence is required. We invite you to take this journey - along the Oleś route, with no idle runs. Only such roads are interesting and inspiring.
