Ladislas Kijno (1921-2012) is a french painter of polish origin.
From a modest family, he studied philosophy with Jean Grenier, and then spent some time inthe studio of Germaine Richier during the post WWI period. Settled in the parisian suburbs since the end of the 1950's, Ladislas Kijno multiplied over time his paint vaporisations and imposed himself as one of the masters of the technique known as "froissage" (crumpling). His acquaitance with Louis Aragon and Francis Ponge in 1943 also brought him to collaborate often with poets. Significant amounts of tributes can be found in his creations: Nicolas de Staël, Nelson Mandela, Galilée and Gagarine ; but also tributes to the algerian, vietnamese people, tahiti, China or Easter Island. Je took part in the Venice bienalle in 1980. In the 1990's he worked on the rose window of Notre-Dame de la Treille in Lille. In 1991, the magazine "L'amateur d'Art" dedicated one of its issue to him.
