About

Dear Guest,

My goal is to give you a piece of positive emotion that I integrate into my art-works. These are not just paintings but source of something very special that brings emotions, feelings through textures, colors and part of my soul to you.

I have been creating art works for more than 6 years already and have done over 250 paintings. Many of them have landed in private collections in Poland, UK, Germany, UAE, Russia and other countries.

I'm self taught artist working on concept of creating art through very sensitive transition of emotions into colors.

I live in Gdynia (Poland) and I find this city amazing because of combination of great people, charm atmosphere of the city and seaside. Rich history also brings a lot of emotions through people living around, nice places, local cuisine and many other nice things.

Emotional Painting

The concept that I am applying in my works is about 2 main ideas

Every painting is pure emotion reflected in combination of different colors. Emotional in this case doesn’t reflect the process how you create art work but rather transparency of transforming internal emotions into colors on canvas. I try to remove any roadblocks and obstacles between internal feelings and external interpretation of them.

Another central idea is about an attempt to trigger positive thinking and emotions on viewer’s side.

Why it is so critical? First of all in a world of change and so dynamic environment we are so much stressed by having negative emotions so the idea of sharing positive feelings and bringing something positive is so much critical. Also supporting each other through giving positive impulse, motivating viewers and giving them a chance to think is so much important.

Finally, when you put art work at home you bring someone’s thinking, idea and emotions in your personal world. This is so much personal and sensitive so you need to be very careful. Literally it means an artist shares part of their heart and soul with you.
And ideally that should be done in so much gentle way to avoid clash with your internal nature and your reflection of external world.

I am trying to take a snapshot of specific moments in my life when I feel something very positive about people, nature or different aspects of life. It’s always unique simply because there are no exactly the same situations or moments. It will be different every time with some new colors or emotions or simply some ingredients that combine and create art. That should be performed at maximum synergy between internal feelings and external environment that includes sounds, colors, emotional context and finally becomes the part of your life!

Emotional Painting: Amateur Reflection
September 13, 2017

Creating artworks becomes more and more popular in the world. Many people think about painting but not always they start it for different reasons. Thousands of reasons behind that but one the obstacles is … you are not a professional in art. That means no special education, no experience etc. At the same time each of us has this unique artistic source inside. I am using the term 'Emotional painting'. Emotional in this case doesn’t reflect the process how you create art work but rather transparency of transforming internal emotions and feelings into colors on canvas.

I try to remove any roadblocks and obstacles between internal feelings and external interpretation of these to bring exact snapshot of what I feel into colors and textures on canvas and that brings amazing experience that I want to share with you. I do hope that my experience will encourage you to try something new in art and create fabulous works and find harmony!
