Andrzej "Yrwig" Krupinski

My name is Andrzej, I was born in Warsaw, Poland. Currently, I live in Spain.I'm graphic/web designer, illustrator, graffiti painter and video game developer. But, above all, I'm a painter, almost devotee of oil-painting.

As I said, I was born in Warsaw... and I grew up under the influence of a catholic education, the post-communist reality in a neighborhood full of gray blocks and the fast developing capitalism mixed with the everytimemorepresent mass-culture. And that's how I became an adult – I am still working on that...

Paintings (and all similar stuff)... I don´t know neither when it started nor when it will stop. For now, I need it. It`s my way to communicate with myself and with all that surrounds me. I always find it funny how people react to my work –which parts of them are touched by it. For me, art is a “mirror”. The things that a viewer finds there (those that inspire him) are parts of himself – of his feelings and beliefs … para-bim para-boom... So I don't pretend to control their reaction, but I like to think that my challenge (and responsibility) is to rock the viewer’s world once in a while.
