Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland. Runs the “Knowledge of the Visual Movements and Structures” studio at the Academy’s Faculty of Paining. Speaks for the type of abstraction wherein art takes charge of itself. Creates paintings, video films, objects. Experiments with the painting’s matter and searches for new, previously unknown methods of painting. Leans towards the sensual dimension. In recent years, he has been developing the cycle “sound paintings” – a transmedia dialogue between painting and sound. Among other things, he uses a special algorithm that helps in transferring a painting into a sequence of sounds. The algorithm is then developed by a composer to create musical space within an exhibition.
