“Scratching the Surface”, is a collection where each painting reflects on familiar. It is a communication between the surface and what is deep inside, a map of human behaviours once the comfortable is removed. When I paint I open a dialogue with the obvious yet question it from the innocent and confused. I reject indoctrinated knowledge and form new. Formed in places between meditation and dreams I was exploring the exaggerated worlds that form from traumas. How I projected protective shield to fend off hurt and reality. Vibrant and twisted. Beautiful and haunting.

Wojtek is an artist who works with a wide range of media such as inks, watercolours, acrylic paints and fine markers. Each of his pieces combines precise sketched lines, which form intricate organic constructions, with added opaque forms, blended with transparent stains. That mixture of techniques allows him to build deeply complex psychological portraits, oscillating between physical/visible and deep emotionally & spiritually charged worlds. While painting, Wojtek commits to meditation, which allows spiritual aspects to enlighten shadow explorations.
