Roman Klonek, born in Kattowitz/Poland, has a soft spot for old fashioned cartoons and modern block printing styles. In the 90s he studied Graphic Arts in Düsseldorf where he discovered his passion for woodcut printing.
For the past 20 years he has created illustrations and prints with a wide range of whimsical creatures, mostly half animal/half human and preferably in awkward situations. His work can be described as a bizarre balancing act between propaganda, folklore and pop.
He works together with friends in a studio in Düsseldorf, Germany.
