I am an interdisciplinary artist educated in Poland and Slovakia.

The main theme of my creation is Ecophilosophy.

My art studio is a space for quite an interesting mix: the criticism of consumerism, the manifestation of cyberpunk visions, and the fascination with organic structures of the natural world.

Based on a Street Art revolution and identity myself with alternative social movements I explore independent art territories through traveling, moving between media, joining visual arts with other disciplines, and organizing interactive events.


I deal with techniques such as paintings, ceramics, trash art, organic matter art, site-specific, and contemporary crafts.
The results are ceramic sculptures, mixed media paintings, objects, installations, collages, or recycled waste electric assemblages.
