recently got the chance to visit Andrzej in his New Haven studio.
Having been a fan of his work for a long time, I was excited to catch
up with him. Check out his studio, some of his work, and hear from
him about his art and New Haven below.

DV: What sort of work are you making these days?
AD: Currently I’m working on a series of “artificial” books, using fake writing and abstract imagery. I enjoy the idea of using a vessel for knowledge that we are all familiar with like a book and turning it into something unknown, leaving the viewer confused, but intrigued.

DV: Why live and make art in New Haven?
AD: I’ve always enjoyed New Haven. After college I traveled a bit, but always found myself drawn back. Maybe it’s just familiarity, but I love this city and the people I’ve come to meet. It’s the perfect size to me with accessibility to New York, or the woods.

DV: What part of New Haven’s art scene are you excited about right now?
AD: I’m always looking forward to seeing what’s new in the local music scene, especially the experimental music scene. Some of the best shows I’ve seen have been in basements in New Haven.

DV: Anything coming up we should be on the look out for?
AD: As of right now I’m trying to complete another book, and hopefully in the near future getting some copies made.
