I was born in an unusual, beautiful, and magical region in Poland- the Warmia-Masuria district. Growing and living close to nature shape my eco-friendly attitude. I create art referring to environmental problems and post-humanistic ideologies. The mains inspirations are natural forms, technological development, and the social impact of postmodern civilization. 

My art studio is a space for quite an interesting mix: a critique of consumerism, a manifest of cyberpunk visions, and recreate organic structures of the natural world.

 

An essential part of my art process is to develop eco concepts based on upcycling and reuse existing matter, or to process natural, organic substances. Although I work with various disciplines and media, using my experimental own techniques, the most characteristic feature of my art is created through handmade and hand-building. The results are ceramic forms, mixed media paintings, contemporary crafts, installations, collages, or recycled waste electric assemblage objects.

 

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, organizing interactive events.
