"HONORING OUR FATHERS" - is Alukotron's debut art exhibit of oil paintings and photography dedicated as a homage to his deceased father. Alukotron's teenage activism during imposed by general Jaruzelski martial law in Poland filled with dramatic events that nearly cost him his own life, as well as his mother's vivid memories from the time of the WW2 who as a child lost her father during Warsaw Uprising, and who survived the "forgotten" Polish Holocaust, those were the factors that deeply impacted his inspiration and clearly shift shaped the current trend in his art. "Today, I am who I am because of my father" -- says Alukotron. "Having my debut in 32 JONES GALLERY affiliated with the Hudson Pride Connections Center, with a theme to honor our fathers makes it twice as important" -- says the artist -- "considering how many members of the LGBT community grew up without fathers and may not know the significance of a supportive father figure in life".
