Piotr trained in stone sculpture for 5 years in Poland where his training included the tradition of studying and copying the work of the great classical sculptors. On completion of his studies, he was invited to join a company focussed on the restoration of decorative stone features on historic buildings. Over the next ten years, Piotr honed his skills working across Europe helping with the restoration of sculpture created by generations of craftsmen and artists.
Throughout this practical immersion in art Piotr developed the skills to envisage and recreate heavily eroded and damaged sculptures in the style of the original artists. Inevitably, his work has been described as ‘cosmetic surgery’ in stone, but more importantly, these skills have led to the development of Piotr’s own artistic style.
Since being invited to carry on this work on the Colleges and Churches of Oxfordshire Piotr’s own contemporary art has flourished and expanded to include digital sculpting. He works in all kinds of materials including wood, clay. Currently, his sculpture, inspired by the Oxfordshire environment, focuses on using the most modern 3D imaging technology to then create his own form in stone that reflects the flow and harmony so evident in organic forms.
