Mateusz Slowakiewicz of Potvory View Larger Image and Additional Photos of Mateusz Slowakiewicz
About Mateusz Slowakiewicz : Mountains in his heart, forest in his mind. He designs, takes photographs, glues tunes, does magic. A music lover and a connoisseur of small musical instruments: jew's-harps, karimbas and ocarinas. Likes people and long conversations. Reads comic books. Loves animation and good movies. Ethnology, mythology, folk, entomology are the key words and very broad subjects for him to discuss. He's fascinated by the Internet culture, games. An Internet surfing addict. In his free time, he swims, treks in the mountains and cooks. If he wasn't a designer, he would be a traveler or a zoologist.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I want to combine fire and water. Traditional and contemporary. Old-fashioned and modern. Analogue and digital. Black and white. One with another.

Why? Because pencil, brush, scissors and paper are all not enough. Because mouse, keyboard and pixels on the screen are all not enough. Because lonely tunes are not enough. We need to look for new connections. New means, solutions, the symbiosis of contradictions, linking of expressions. In order to create fresh, unnamed, unknown, uncopied, hybrid, monstrous.
