At the beginning it wasn't obvious for me at all that I wanted to become just a painter. It seemed like a limitation for me, so I have been looking to express myself somehow as a creative person. I played in a band of electronic music in my birth town, Ketrzyn (Poland), then started to make movies and write screenplays at the Creative Film Workshops in Warsaw. For many years I was also a computer graphic designer at Publishing House. Looking from today’s point of view, I think that this broad background, plus humanistic education (Art Pedagogy at the University of Warsaw), has been helpful for me as a painter.
In 2011 I was able to gain interest of a well-established gallery in Warsaw, called Milano, and it was the beginning of our long-term, warm cooperation until today. However, I was still looking for places to present my work to a wider audience, engaging in activities of a few online art portals, and taking part in competitions. My real turning point came in 2012 along with the online popularity of one painting: Lovers. Since then, I started getting proposals for collaboration – for instance from Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami and Galerie Sandhofer in Innsbruck.
