Hibernatic is Pawel Janicki's 4th release, and second to which I contribute cover art. The painting we chose for this one is Opal, an oil from earlier this year that came in response to music and sounds surrounding me at work in those days. It turned out to be exceptionaly good match with Pawel's spacious, otherworldly soundscapes! The album is out and available for streaming and digital download at Pawel's bandcamp site: https://pjanicki.bandcamp.com/. Much recommended!
One of the fruits of our recent exhibition is this colaboration with Pawel Janicki.
Pawel, an undercover musical prodigy living in Kielce, showed up at our opening. We had a very interesting talk and he offered some really original insights into what we presented. By the end of the evening we ended up agreeing that I should provide a cover image for his new album, finished these very days and now in mastering.
Listening to these sounds I felt they would match well with the painting I made a couple of years earlier- the image, in my own perception of it, was a visual meditation on sound - the primal vibration that brings matter into being. As such it seems very much in place in this muscial context.
Pawel's is very vast and spacious music - flowing through motifs never holding on to any. Deeply recommended - and he's offering digital version of the album as free download via Jamendo - here's the link
This digital/photographic work of mine has been shortlisted for the 'Portraits from the Precipice' project organised by Artfinder together with Octopus Energy that funds and promotes renewable energy projects around the world - the idea behind the contest is of raising awareness about how important sustainability is and how urgently we have to start taking care - so I'm more than happy to parttake in this.

Happy to announce the "Rubedo" - upcoming show with Ambra Nanut in Kielce, Poland. We will be showing an overview of our work from the last few years - it feels a lot like a culmination of an important work we've both done and I am looking very forward to seeing it all hanging together in the very special space that is Sklep ze Sztuka

Really really nice surprise came with this article about my work from Daniela Roughsedge. Daniela writes in a wonderful, flowing way which gives me precious possibility to get a glimpse on my own work through her eyes. She offers a very mature and meditative insight, so obviously a result of truly staying with those images and getting to the depths of them - something so rare these days and something I'm all the more grateful for - this is quite likely the best and most relevant piece of writing concerning my work I've ever received! Thank you!
Daniela is a paintress herself, and extraordinary one at that! Here's the link to her website
My 'Angel after Redon' multipilied and made its way to the cover of the latest book by Mihaela Minulescu: 'Complexele. Creativitate sau distructivitate'. Mihaela is Jungian analyst extraordinaire, founder of this school in Romania and its wisest voice in these lands - if you're lucky to speak Romanian get your copy here .
We've been here for a while now - seems like a good moment to sum up the visual output of this period. Mine and Ambra's first exhibition in Romania - looking very forward to this. And huge thanks to Bogdan Hoisescu from Aviatorilor IX for inviting us.
The show opens 31.01 at 8pm
I'll be presenting my recent work - together with Ambra Nanut and Ljuben Cvetkoski - next week in Ohrid, Macedonia.

Opening 24.06 at 8pm
The works presented by Przemek captivate with their form, fantastic selection of interpenetrating colors and the harmony of the message. The artist invites us to the world of fantasy. The viewer who responds to this invitation will experience strong impressions and unique emotions. I highly recommend Przemek's works! Bravo Przemek!
