About artist

Born
6.01.1967
Born in Łódź, 1967. Graduated from Łódź’s Academy of Fine Arts. Calls himself an “apprentice” to Jan Matejko, Andrzej Łobodziński, Bohumil Hrabal, Peter Singer and Slavoj Žižek. Member of independent artistic groups and associations: Stowarzyszenie Twórców Kultury Niezależnej Kil–210, Stowarzyszenie Galeria Xylolit, Legendy Grupy Momentaryzm Ścierwo, hard-punk group Pogodancepolo, now TTSS, Human-ex and GruseHajncelGroup. His artistic interests include painting, video art, comic books and murals. He was assistant set decorator during the shooting of Jan Jakub Kolski’s The Commander's Sword, worked at a factory, taught at school, designed computer graphics but has always remained an artist. By using realistic painting, he creates his own spaces which are not necessarily realistic in interpretation. His films are a digital recording of events, interferences provoked by himself by temporarily annexing real space. His comic books and murals are a kind of therapy and protest against national stupidity growing to the size of totems that no-one needs. In 2008–2009, together with Krzysztof Grus, he presented a series of solo exhibitions entitled “Meetings”: in Galeria Bielska BWA, Bielsko-Biała; Galeria Kantorek (part of the Galeria Miejska BWA in Bydgoszcz) and in Galeria Manhattan, Łódź.
