LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
MILO (30.03.1974) - a multi-talented artist. Painter, graphic designer, as well as writer, director of award-winning documentaries. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow at the faculty of Painting, where he has been lecturing on the subject of Grammar of Moving Image at the Intermedia department for seven years.
His favorite form of expression is collage. It is a metaphor of human life. Collage can be created by anyone presenting on canvas their personal scraps of life assembled into a unique whole. MILO does not follow a specific current but breaks out of the patterns. It alludes to the history of collage but creates its own unique form. "Even if I were born in the basement, I would paint like that" - says the artist himself.
His work is fluid. Very often his paintings undergo many metamorphoses before they reach their final shape. The author matures and changes with them.
"Painting is something terrible because it is a conglomerate of experiences, a storm of emotions that sometimes even goes into a physical state. If you don't paint, the soul screams and wants to get out of the body. My hands hurt, my whole body refuses to do anything other than painting. When I start painting I can't stop, I can't sleep, I can't eat, I only sit at the easel and fight with myself " - MILO.
Others about the MILO art:
"Everything is extremely intelligent and well thought out." - Iwona Siwek-Front, painter artist
"He can always express himself, he can see elements of reality, he can comment and at the same time keep his homogeneous style, reaching deep into his imagination, fancy and his character. Each of his works is distinctive. " - Aleksandra Madej, curator of the exhibition "Coca-collage."
"The chamber works of MILO, collages and assemblages loosely refer to the world of commercials of the 1960s and '70s or the surrealist style of Przekrój magazine, pay attention to the role of accident, surprise or even spontaneity in real and seemingly ordered life." - Katarzyna Pisarczyk, director of BWA Sandomierz
"Milo is experimenting with form and symbolism with certain messages not necessarily related to what was previously associated with collage. They are not purely formal, but very interesting in the semantic layer." - prof. Jan Tutaj, Vice Rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow

Painting is my calling. When I don't paint my soul screams and wants to get out of my body.
