Andrzej graduated with an MA degree in Fine Arts in the faculty of Sculpture from The Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in 2012. He also studied at The Newcastle University at the department of Fine Art from 2010 till 2011. He moved to London in December 2012 and became a member of the Bow Arts Trust in June 2013. He has exhibited in Poland, Germany and now the UK. From concept to completion Andrzej’s sculpture is created and finished entirely by Andrzej. He casts his own bronze and applies and finishes his own carefully chosen patinas. He is truly an artist of perfection.
“I have practiced Judo since I was 7 and have competed at high international levels. The discipline has a significant impact on every aspect of my personality. The mindset of judo is also the way in which I approach my life. For me it means dealing with problems and tasks in resourceful manners and never settling for anything less than the absolute best. In terms of my sculpture, I require myself to be perfect at every stage along the way to completing a finished piece. These highest standards of perfection are what I strive to live by and are what guide me in my art.” – Andrzej Szymczyk
