Summary/Abstract: The subject of the article is a presentation of selected works of the contemporary artist against the background of the travel motif. Różycki describes himself as a peripatetic, and transfers that feature to the subjects of his texts. The theme of the journey is one of the most important themes of Różycki's works, manifesting not only in physical wandering, but also in mental travel. This sketch presents selected works in the context of a journey to many geographical spaces and as memorable treks seeking to get to know their own identity. An important element is the presentation of the context of family memories, focusing on the theme of migration from the Kresy Wschodnie to Upper Silesia (Opole). The movement in Różycki's works presents the need for contemporary man to move as a way to determine his own identity.
