My painting work is diversified. In the first group of paintings I take up different issues concerning people and the social and cultural space in which they have to function every day. I present it in a metaphorical way, with the help of geometrised forms. For me it is important to achieve an interesting effect of three-dimensionality of an image, which I try to obtain by combining painting and drawing techniques. The works are characterised by a narrowed down colour range. These paintings, through their minimalism of forms and diverse textures, can be an interesting element in modern interior decoration. The second group of paintings are paintings of greater formal freedom. A splash of colour is their most important feature. The paint is applied with the impasto technique, usually with a spatula. A wide range of colours and strong chiaroscuro contrasts build the atmosphere of individual compositions. In my graphic designs I often deal with social, political and cultural issues. Some works are also interpretations of literary works. The drawings are usually made with ink, because this technique gives surprising and unpredictable effects, thanks to which the works have their individual nature. I am also interested in photography, especially black and white photography, which allows me to capture the unique mood of the moment.

Other interests: interior design, history of art.
