I was born in 1974 in Kraków, Poland. I am a professional painter and photographer. My work is concerned with broadly understood portrait. I am not only interested in the traditional focus on form but also in capturing the personality and nature of the portraied persons and animals, which emerge in their everyday,seemingly meaningless gestures and behaviours. I have used the ability to see these fleeting idiosyncracies in studio and still photography, which complements my artistic endeavours. My inspiration comes from living and working in Poland, Germany, USA, Ireland and India. I am currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Igraduated in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland in 2003. I also studied at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin and Universität der Künste in Berlin. This is where between 2005-2005 I ran a gallery called Zgrzyt (meaning "grind" in Polish)
