(Nowy Sącz, Poland, 1996) is a multidisciplinary creative currently based in Meath/Dublin, Ireland. His works span a variety of mediums including photography, graphic design, and film.
Adrian specialises in portrait, food, and advertising photography with years' experience working alongside Ireland's best photographers on a wide range of national and international campaigns.
His personal photographic work includes expressive self-portraiture and work concerned with themes of ideology, human interaction, and abstract formalism. More recently, Adrian moved towards filmmaking and has acted as director and cinematographer on two short films. Both films (a short film about filing / More Than This) explore themes of bureaucracy, memory, and isolation, and have received recognition at film festivals across Ireland and internationally.
Adrian studied Photography at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dún Laoghaire. He graduated from the BA (Hons) programme with First Class Honours and received a commendation from the Irish Professional Photographer's Association in recognition of the work produced during his final year.
