He has shown his works at many exhibitions, including in Los Angeles, New York, Paris and San Francisco.

Grzegorz Domaradzki started his professional work from storyboards and illustrations; later, he also became involved in graphic design and widely understood computer graphics. In recent years, he has been dedicated almost completely to traditional graphic arts (screen printing) and creating illustrated alternative posters of limited editions. His posters include classic and cult works of the world cinematography, pop culture hits, high-budget productions, and less commercial movies. Those posters are created based on realistic pencil drawings, processed or created on a computer using a tablet and graphic software. His works use various artistic conventions, including academicism, symbolism, Art Nouveau, and pop-art. Those conventions form a foundation on which he builds his own recognizable style, which is sometimes nostalgic and dark, sometimes purely decorative, and sometimes cool, matter-of-fact and reportorial.
