ARTISTT STATEMEN - I was born in 1959 in a small city called Lenczyca in Poland, a city with 1000 years old history with many beautiful castles, old buildings and churches. I started to paint when i was about 8 years old. Penetrating old buildings and old ruins of castles looking for treasures and antiques, one day i found an old box of oil paints and some old paintings. I was charmed by the beauty of real old things and started to collect them, love, and appreciate them. I had the opertunity to regularly visit the museum, which was located in our castle, admiring old furniture, sculptures and of course paintings. Those experiences and mysteries swamp surrounded Lenczyca had a huge impact on my work and life. The darkness of dungeons and legends about the greatest guardian of Lenczyca's treasure-Boruta Devil appears on my canvases quite often. From that time untill today, I use oil paints and old master technique which I was influenced by ( John Martin, Rembrand, Rubens, Van Dyk ) to create my own magical world from my imagination and dreams, about life and death in the atmosphere of mysteries.
