About me

I was born in Gliwice, a Silesian industrial town in the south of Poland. Having studied painting for five years at the Silesian Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice I graduated in 2005 with a Master of Fine Arts with specialism in painting. My professors were Maciej Bieniasz who taught me painting and Roman Kalarus a poster design specialist. I wrote my thesis about Goethe’s theory of colours, supervised by dr Dorota Głazek. It was published in 2010 in “About the World and the Images of the World, vol. II. Theses by Students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice”.

Currently I work as a graphic designer and front-end developer for an IT company. I specialize in creating responsive websites.
