In 5 years I will be…
I have no idea and I am completely fine with this! I want to move around the globe, explore new places and be challenged!

Life is awesome when…
When you want something and the pieces just fall together like it’s meant to be.

I would like to die…when I’ve reached a level of satisfaction in my life that I’m happy with.

I like my new hometown Krakow because it’s mental on so many levels, it’s buzzing with talent, plus it’s remarkably beautiful.

My style is…
I’m building myself. We are forever evolving and learning from everything around us. Styles are constantly changing. I think you have to be an absolute master to have a unique and individual style.

When the shit hits the fan…Your instincts kick in. Instinct comes from experience and learning from your previous hiccups. If shit hit the fan from the start, I guess you’re up shit creek.

Instinct or logic?
Logic for the technical issues and instinct for the creative challenges.

Who has made the biggest impact on you creatively?
Without a doubt, my girlfriend Marta., She is a bouncing ball of freckled creativity and has been an absolute inspiration in my life.

If you were an animal what would you be?
A lion. We share some pretty similar traits so it only makes sense.

Favourite person from history is?
Too many to mention just one…

What advice would you give an aspiring digital artist/photographer?
Mistakes are important for growth.
Do visual research. Every day.
Suck it in and learn to take honest criticism.
Read, learn then experiment.

What’s your poison?
Getting too comfortable and forgetting that constantly challenging yourself is the only way forward.

What would you crawl over hot coals for?
The cool water at the end.

What is your passion?
Creating things. Whether that be digitally, with my hands, artistically or mechanically,  it is definitely my passion.
