Maciej Dyczkowski




I am a professional painter and photographer. I graduated 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. My work is concerned with broadly understood portrait with focus on capturing the personality and nature of the portrayed person and animal. My inspiration comes from living and working in Poland, Germany, USA, Ireland, Wales and India. I am currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

zgrzyt berlin

In between 2005 and 2007 I ran an art gallery called Zgrzyt, deliberately chosen as a free space which leaves gap for spontaneous artistic activities in a moment. It was a MEETING and EXHIBITION CENTER in Berlin, Germany.
The name means "grind" in Polish. “ZGRZYT” is a musical event, a noise full of disagreement, friction and conflict. Several distant sound are clumping together to lead to the point, that is no longer recognizable in their details, unpleasant and annoying. It is an evident of CHAOS.
