Master of Graphic 2017 r.  ASP Kraków

I use primal forms to tell stories about the farthest corners of the human psyche. I am interested in what is extrasensory, spiritual and non-verbal. I often come across experiences in which my tongue is too poor to convey the majesty of the experience narrated. Painting works in such states manifests very well. I create at different moments in my life, feeling joy, freedom and flow, other times I sink into melancholy and my own sensuality. My works, despite the noticeable unrealism, tell a real story of being a man who has his own language to describe what he experiences. I am immersed in processes that go far beyond verbal abilities, therefore I create and paint. In this way, the subtle content that occurs in me can be made real. The original forms that I use for my message are common and universal for every sentient subtle human being, thanks to which I can freely create a thread of understanding, weaving narratives on the border of sleep and reality.
