Once upon a time I
had read on my fb website a very special comment that made me curious.
It was written by Jolanta Nitkowska-Węglarz, who is the writer and
journalist. She did like very much my paintings and imagined her
Pomeranian fairy tales book with just such pictures. Reading her
typescripts reminded me of my beloved books for children. That was like
a magical journey through enchanted Pomerania, filled with ghosts,
witchcraft, princesses and devils. Fairy tales are traditionally built -
goodness triumphs, evil must be punished. The book has a special
atmosphere of Pomeranian respect for nature, diligence, wisdom,
righteousness and kindness. Whole book smells the Baltic Sea, as the Author says.
I am convinced that you will find these traditional, very beautiful
fairy tales interesting and the enchanted Pomerania will be closer to
you as a tame, intriguing and fascinating land. Because I had
always a hidden dream of making illustrations for fairy tales, therefore
our wishes met somewhere halfway between two stormy seas - North and
Baltic. Unexpectedly Mr. Jozef Kloska of “Unigraf“, the publishing
company, found our project very interesting and he decided to publish
the book. Then our adventure started on the board of "truly
atomic-powered" sailing ship, because we got only one month to close the
project. I gave up the exhibition in Rome, closed myself in my studio,
when Jola had been writing the final versions of her fairy tales.
Extremely intensive work has resulted in a new book for children,
“Journey To FairyLand”, which is already in print and I look forward
until I take it in my hand and smell it’s fresh printing ink.
On its cover you will find my painting promoting the 8th edition of Art
Naif Festival in Katowice. A year ago I gained the Grand Prix and
according to Festival’s tradition winner’s painting promotes the next
