"I have been dealing with graphics for many years, while technologies have changed: serigraphy, offset, digital printing. The motives of my activity are very prosaic - I am an hobbistic collector of pictures created at the interface of reality and my imagination. These creations have no philosophy, attitude, intention, metaphor or second meaning. This is a purely biological pleasure of playing with the image. The basis of my "research" is always a photographic registration subjected to various treatments and interventions. It turned out however, that the fragments of reality satisfying me are close to me: in the damaged structure of plaster, in the roughness of accidental stone, in a creased sheet of paper ... The colour appears very rarely as blackand white bring me the most joy. I experiment with printed formats. I want this slightly suspicious activity to work on and develop ".
