1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

My whole life is connected to art. I am an art historian. I run the city art gallery Galeria Kameralna ATElier Kultury in Jaworzno (Poland).

2. Why do you make art?

Making art is an internal need. The research I conduct on the world, especially optics, is the subject of my art. My work reflects my seeing of the world.

3. What inspires you?

I am inspired by the mechanism of the human eye and how it deceives our perception.

4. What/who are your influences?

The world.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

I would like to meet Pablo Picasso. When I was 11 his sculpture “Bull’s head” opened my mind on art.
