Biography

I was born in 1984 and live and work in London.

I believe the universe gives you what you need, not what you want.
Different experiences in my life have brought me to the place I am currently meant to be and to the people I am surrounded by.
These exact moments, situations and the memories leading to them are what I am inspired by to then transfer onto canvas.
I particularly love the freedom to step out of the “here and now”. That world where possibilities are endless and boundaries do not exist. Where I can see the invisible and explore the impossible with no expectation or rules. Being liberated like this I can then paint my vision and my dreams intuitively like a barefoot dance with abandon and imagination at 5am while the rest of the world sleeps.
I believe that paintings are only supposed to be seen fully by the person who wants to see it. This cannot be forced. The experience is singular to everyone and we will take from seeing them only what we want to.

Influences

I am inspired by the world around me, having made my home in East London but also experiencing a full impactful life in Italy as well as my homeland of Poland. I am born of emotion, driven by feeling, unwavering in my drive for truth through who I am, through my artwork. Each painting is a symbol of moments, memories and different perspectives as I paint what I feel the most or what I miss the most. I like the fact that I have opportunity to guide the "sound" of each painting into someone's mind and they in turn experience whatever vibe they will feel without any obligation to see what I want them to see. I like to dream and use my imagination to create pictures always capturing the light. I believe the light is crucial for us mortal creatures and beautiful souls to experience and see. Light reflects positivity.

I wish for my work to inspire, be the motivational speech, lift the spirit, be the light in the darkness or maybe just brighten up someone's day.
My painting style is centred around strong and decisive strokes. My main theme is to create intense and vibrant movement with the brush or palette knife. I want them to be distinct and memorable, to stand out visibly in plain sight. No instrument is excluded, I am open to using all that is available to me.

I build my paintings with multiple layers, texture is important to me.
I want the painting to go through numerous stages of discovery until it is ready to become its final version. This is to show the rough surfaces as in life no journey is without ripples, no journey is easy and smooth.
