His sources of inspiration include avant-garde art, even though he sometimes uses irony while commenting on this genre. His means of expression cover both documentary (Phantoms - a Story of Scarecrows) and drama (the Auschwitz and Images series). His work has been shown at numerous solo and group exhibitions, including two solo exhibitions in Galeria B&B in Bielsko-Biała: Images and Travels in 1992 and Fears in 1996, as well as at the National Exhibition of Painting "Bielska Jesień" in Galeria Bielska BWA in 2001, when he received an honourable mention. His achievements include a Scholarship from the Ministry of Culture and Art in 1985 and 1998, and Silver Medal of Gloria Artis in 2009. His work can be seen in many public collections in Poland and abroad. He lives and works in Katowice.
