..was searching for technical solutions and tools..
After graduation for two years he was searching for technical solutions and tools appropriate for his artistic expression which would allow him to realize his subjects in a true way. He was also working on identifying and solidifying subject fundaments.
His work evolved during the search for technique and finally he managed to crystalize his private, characteristic subjects and characters created in his spiritual realm. He mixes an ironic approach to evil with images of woman distanced to the male ego, as well as mythological symbols and folklore. There are also devils, demons which themselves become tempted by the female beauty; their “evil” contrasted with the real world is naïve and human-like, posing little threat. Nature, light and form of nature serve as yet another inspiration.
..as a result of interpretation of postmodernism and neo-fauvism..
For around two years he has been using a technique which is the effect of searching and working on his painting. It was born as a result of interpretation of postmodernism, neo-fauvism, abstract geometric form and symbolism. Such interpretations allow him to build his own unique style.
He also paints under the pseudonym „Polski Thomas”, touching on the subject of surface perception in painting, the structure of matter, the microworld and abstract subjects.
