From the artist:
   As a child I would scribble all over my Mum’s books. Nowadays I respect books much more and pour all my emotions on canvas. I was studying Graphic Design at The Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, that’s why drawing became a key element of my paintings. I try to leave as much of the intial sketch in the painting as possible, I prefere the linear, sharp and defined drawing to a tonal one.
   At the same time colour always is and has been the most important element of my paintings. I like strong, energetic colours and tend to contrast them with flat areas of colour. When I paint it is more like the colour takes over my heart and directs me then the other way around.
   I was never very good with answering questions like „what inspired you?“ or „why is the cat in the corner of the painting?“... well, why not?! I never understood the point of artificially backing up your art with made up philosophies. I think that’s why my paintings are so alive – I paint from the bottom of my heart, follow my instinct, it is like my brush becomes a part of my body. Every painting represents a few days of my life, the mood I was in.
