Summary/Abstract: Written in 2020, the monographic publication Malarstwo jako egzystencja – postawa twórcza a tożsamość osobista [Painting as Existence – Creative Attitude and Personal Identity] is in fact the second part of the publication published by University of Silesia Press in 2020: Pamięć czasu – malarstwo w czasach bankructwa duchowego [Memory of Time – Painting in Times of Spiritual Bankruptcy]. The new publication contains over 20 essays – comments and reflections on the fundamental issue, which is the problem of personal identification of the author in the creative experience. This complex authorial reflection, written in the context of over 40 years of painting practice, in which the issue of personal identity of the author resounds as a fundamental formative element, becomes a significant voice of a man deeply concerned about the state of current artistic activity, where the omission and disregard of this aspect extremely impoverishes the meaning and significance of many achievements in the current sphere of art.
