I was born in 1995. I am a student at the Intermedia department (animation faculty)

at the Academy of fine arts in Kraków, Poland.

My works consist of different mediums such as painting, drawing, graphic, traditional photogrphy and new media art. My major area of interests are Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory, Americana, Route 66 and pop culture.

In 2012 I won the first award and honorable mention in Nationwide Biennal „The human landscape” inspired by famous Polish artist Józef Czapski.

In the same year, I designed posters for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.

 

I have been honored with „The Diamond Grant”,which is granted by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland, for my project: „Immersion in an animated film”.

 

Since 2018 I have been giving Edie Sedgwick a second life under the name Mazda Isphahan.

I have taken part in many group and solo art exhibitions in Poland, United States and

Netherlands and my works are in private collections all over the world.
