    Fundamentals of Printmaking

In 1982 he graduated from the State Higher School of Visual Arts in Wrocław (at present the Academy of Art and Design).

I want the images of nature based on motives observed in nature to become also images of the image's character. In my search, I avoid the route of traditionally understood synthesis and analysis, and I choose the option of variants which allows me to give attention to each situation individually. In the contour-controlled matter, I trigger the process of its permanent condensing that leads to the state of boiling. The contour is only a sketch, and the completed work is a study for further works.
