A few words from me (about myself/my hobbies):

He is occupied by the theory and practice of visual arts. He designed publishing series, magazines layouts albums and posters. His illustrations and articles in the field of the fine arts have been published in the following magazines: Exklusiv, Warsaw Point, Artifex, Świat Kultura Podróże (world culture travels), Photoshop, Po godzinach (after hours), Mówią Wieki (centuries speaking), Życie Warszawy (Warszawa's life), Dziennik (daily paper), Gazeta Wyborcza. In his artistic work he uses the visual language characteristic of mass culture, which is the reason of his repeated participation in undertakings connected with cartoon, poster, street art and animated film. As an animation creator he has completed, within the freelance agreement with TV HBO and AXN, over 20 short films to scripts of Rafał Skarżyński. In years 2003 – 2007 he cooperated as a graphic artist with Życie Warszawy (Warszawa's life), printing tens of cartoon charts and shorts. In 2004 his works were included in Antologia Komiksu Polskiego (anthology of Polish cartoon) of Egmont publishing house. At this time he set up and presided over, as the editor-in-chief, COM X magazine, gathering a young generation of artists from the precincts of Warszawa. He is a great devotee of street art and an author of large format murals that can be seen both on the street of Warszawa and in prestigious locations – for example Mur Sztuki (art wall) in Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego (The Warsaw Rising Museum). As a lecturer at Academy of Photography and Academy of Fine Arts in Warszawa (2003 – 2005) he has been repeatedly invited to a jury of graphic, photographic and illustration contests (among others: BWA POLYGONUM, Warszawska Jesień Fotograficzna – Warszawa's photographic autumn, LAIF, VOYAGE, Animuj Warszawę – animate Warszawa).
