Was born in Varsovia, 1961, lives and works Nueva York), through his photographs, videos, sculptures and multimedia installations creates incredibly emotionally charged images, which elicit a response from the viewer. On the one hand, he appropriates the iconography of the history of art and the advertising aesthetics to elaborate precise, convincing images that could be associated to those spread by the media on a daily basis, to which he applies a colour alteration, making them almost unreal. He also explores the resources of photography and the digital media to take an ordinary image close to abstraction, furthermore applying a series of alterations that question its validity as a register of reality.
