About the Artist
Art is my philosophy of life and my painting is a confession, a public confession ! I graduated with honors from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland, with a diploma from Faculty of Painting and specialization in graphics.
I worked as an artist engraver in The State Mint in Warsaw. In Centre For The Promotion Of Culture in South Praga, Warsaw, Poland I had position: Chief Instructor of art classes, I was co- founder and co-organiser 'Delfina Gallery ' and ' Aktyn Gallery'. A member of Polish Printers Association, Association of Polish Artists and Designers, and since 2006 a president of the Association of Polish Painters Miniaturists. 1980 - I received the creative scholarship from the The Ministry of Culture and Art, 1996 - an Award of the Mayor of South Praga of the capital city of Warsaw for popularizing and educational activities in the arts. 2013 - the badge of honor 'Merit for Polish Culture' awarded by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage. Throughout career organized many charitable auctions, the largest being a nationwide Auction of Works of Art for the flood victims in the National Museum in Warsaw 08-09-1997, and participated in numerous exhibitions in Poland and abroad.
My works are currently in private collections in Poland and around the world. In my work I use a variety of painting techniques: oil, watercolor, pastel, ink and mixed media. My favourite theme is portrait, both in large format and in a miniature. In landscapes I'm fascinated by the light and space without unnecessary anecdote. In abstract compositions I'm preoccupied with notions revolving around semantics.'
