His sculptures can be found in the permanent collection of Museum Europeu d'Art Modern in Barcelona.
The exhibition was a unique opportunity to take a different perspective on modern sculpture, as a contemporary storage medium in the classical form.
Among the artist’s works exhibited at the 101projekt Gallery were Anointed (Pomazaniec), Bike (Rowerek), Alchemist (Alchemik), Bench (Ławeczka). In his sculptures the artist used various materials such as paper, resin, bronze, ceramics and wood.
