“My painting is my own way of explaining and making the surrounding reality more close and understandable. At the same time, it is a means of influence, it provides control over my view of the world, helps to organize and understand it, and makes it more human. “Mirek doesn’t paint what he doesn’t know. He paints well-known thing and is able to introduce his own prism optics between the viewer and the presented subject. We see things we didn’t see before. We notice elements that have been marginalized so far.” – Piotr Raszewski
