Michał Mąka

 

Born in 1989 in Kalisz ,Poland. Graduate of painting and graphics at the faculty of art pedagogical in Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, artistic and pedagogical department in Kalisz.

 

I deal with painting, printmaking, photography, street art, painting the outside. Using techniques of hand-cut stencils applied with spray paint.

 

The paintings are important for me to reflections on the human condition and the modern world. The need to protest against double standards, sensationalism, media manipulation - stems from my relationship to the world - I'm a pacifist.
