The originality and individualism of Alfred Lenica's style is the result of a combination of surrealism, Tashism, informel and dripping. In his works there is a break with the representation of real objects in favor of abstract forms as if growing on top of each other, set against an equally unreal background. These accumulations of irregular structures reminiscent of natural processes in nature give his paintings an almost biological character.
In painting, he sought a path of expression to show the experiences and emotions resulting from the post-war trauma. He juxtaposes the reality seen through his eyes - as an artist - with the real reality, thus giving himself and the viewer of the work the possibility of experiencing it in a new way, which makes his paintings ambiguous and multi-layered.
