“I have never thought about the creation of my own style. Most of all, it results from the theme of illustrated text – it is that that often impose ‘heaviness’ or ‘lightness’ of form.”
As he says, Mirosław Gryń’s art undergoes constant changes. He combines various techniques: painting, drawing and graphic computer programs. He likes to use real-world motives, compiling them with symbolic references. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw Graphics Department as a student of Professor Julian Pałka and specialises in press illustration. He aims to make his work function beyond the press articles they were made for.
He has contributed to both Polish and foreign periodicals and his work can be found in “Polityka”, “Res Publica Nowa”, “Świat Nauki”, “Wprost” and “Puls Biznesu”, as well as “Dialog. Deutsch-Polnisches Magazin” and “Der Tagesspiegel”. He has taken part in individual and collective exhibitions at home and abroad, but the most important one so far has been at the “Ilustracje prasowe” exhibition at the Caricature Museum in Warsaw in 2003. He was also the Grand Prix winner at the international competition “Satyrykon” in 2004 and won a special prize for his work on the weekly, “Przekrój”.
