As a visual artist, I explore themes such as queer desire, transformation, gender, and dysphoria and find inspiration in my circle of friends. My work is influenced by theorists, poets, and activists such as Zanele Muholi, Judith Butler, Diane Arbus, James Baldwin, and Kai-Isaiah Jamal. The common denominator for these is the discussion about exclusion at various levels.

Tomasz's work comes from his inner space. Using elements of performance and installation, he mixes fiction with reality, which results in quasi-documentary outcome.
