“What you see no one else sees. Even if he had seen a lot more.” This phrase from book Wieslaw Myśliwski, “The Horizon” is the essence of my approach to art.
A long way home, yes……it was a journey to discover and live the world of graphics. Especially the woodcut. The picture you see is one of the first woodcuts that I made and is actually about a distant goal and a mass of obstacles on our way, we would like to remove them, but every boulder and every shadow carries invaluable knowledge and a lesson. I invite you on a journey through the world, landscapes and meanders of graphic art.
A long time ago in drawing class.
On this page, I will describe my creative activities, connected with traveling and exploring nature, and art.

When we are going to art in the bosom of nature, then we cannot be limited by a large heavy graphic press. This simple solution allows you to develop graphics, even in remote areas. We can immediately reflect it and work like the legendary artists of the Barbizon school.
I studied in two academic centers, in Łódź and Warsaw. Łódzkie is famous for its innovation and avant-garde art. Warsaw, on the other hand, has more narrative traditions, altogether might give you an interesting perspective. The contradiction is sometimes apparent, it is most often produced by our perception. Searching for new forms and narration can complement each other. It is worth forgetting about old conflicts, schools like Strzemiński versus Pronaszko.
