Wallphotex gallery of unique collector's photography.

Photography stores memories, moments become emotions. My pictures are my haiku, I take them because of my need to preserve the light, places, conection with another human beings. Collecting photographs is like collecting moments. Here and now of the artist. It is the need to see the world not only through our own eyes, but also from the  perspective and experience of other people.

Surrounding with art means getting to know each other, being open to others. It is the curiosity about what is behind this form.

  Here at Wallphotex, my passion for photography meets the usability – I want to present artworks outside art galleries. I want to see my photos get a new life in different interiors giving them unique character. I offer limited edition hand-signed work of photography. 

  I also play with the style of the photo wallpapers, I struggle with perceiving it as kitsch, I use this medium of a large print for my original statements.

  Łódź, Polska, 1998. I graduate from The Photography Department at Lodz Film School. I present the graduation work in my apartment, I install huge photographs on the walls, my first original photomurals.

  This is how my Wallphotex concept begins. I’ve been promoting the art of photography and presenting it for individual and business clients for many years.
