Sculpture is a very broad topic in every aspect. Depending on the theme, you can show many possibilities and realize how much there is still to learn ... This was also the case when I started carving a series of gorillas. Firstly I carved heads, then busts, and in the end whole figures. Only then I realized that in order to start building the shape of a sculpture, you need to get to know the anatomy of an animal.

So I came up with idea of sculpting only skulls, which during carving gave me the opportunity to deeply analyze the anatomy and shape. For me, going this path, in search of a suitable shape, was of colossal importance in understanding the form of a gorilla's skull and head. Shaping skulls is very interesting to me and I will come back to it in my future projects.

Very often in my creative work I take up the subject of a monster portrait. This is an exercise on how the whole character can look like at the end. I try to propose not only an interestingly carved figure, but most of all one that has an interesting design. Before I sculpt, I consider if the monster should appear threatening, disgusting or be funny, and whether it should be more of a fantasy or sci-fi world. Of course, you can never predict what the final effect of the work will be like - I love to make assumptions, and while working, follow my intuition and analysis of what I see and feel.
