Someone’s creative offspring can detail much about their ideals, philosophies, and various characteristics, whether visible or concealed. Janusz is a Polish artist with a body of work that reveals to the audience a fascination with pop culture – past and present. Hence the presence of many film and comic book heroes in his art meshed with the ordinary activities found among various human communities. He creates large figurative paintings that are a collage of pop art, realism and surrealism. “My works are creative compositions that take on shape of dreamy visions. Landscapes, which have their own rights, are rich in details and symbols. Paintings are an illustration of my times and experiences.”
