My name is Paweł Sadaj, I live in Warsaw, in Poland. Since the beginning of my work I have been interested in human being. Both in metaphysical and socio-cultural aspect. I create a series of thematically related artworks. Each project I prepare for long time to be sure of what I want to create.
Creating my artworks I use a various of techniques – from traditional to the latest in digital technology. To merge them together gives the paintings a new, unique dimension. In the creative process every detail is important to me.
