I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where I specialized in graphics. I have since then worked as a freelancing artist, and painting and drawing are the techniques that dominate my work. I create figurative compositions and landscapes. Through the figurative representations, I seek to portray existential questions, and I focus on the reality that I am surrounded by, i.e. the reality of the “modern man” living in an era of multidimensional change.
The second main theme of my work is landscapes. I interpret the strong emotions that my surroundings, and especially nature, evoke. My compositions sometimes preserve observed orders and divisions, often, however, the painting leads me into more abstract grounds. In my work on landscapes the need to simplify and summarize dominates, but at the same time, I work with different textures to create a living image.
Portraits take a special place in my work. Through the face, I seek to express the truth about the human being, whatever that might mean. I paint, draw and make graphics about family members, friends as well as strangers, and I am often inspired by photographs.
Painting occupies the most place in my work. However, the graphics remind you of yourself. I put away the brushes and go to the graphic studio. I have my own graphic studio since 2018. This will cause my graphic work to grow. In graphics, just like in painting – I am looking for the right form. Everything is clearer in black and white graphics. The technique forces strong decisions. I like working in traditional techniques, especially in the linocut technique. But I am also looking for unusual traces, I create matrices from various materials. Graphics is searching. Although the graphics allow reproduction, it is not the most important for me. I print small editions.
Graphic print on good paper has an element of nobility, unique beauty.
I believe that a hand-made graphic print will always be needed. I believe that computer techniques, which are already more widely used by graphic artists, will not dominate traditional techniques.
