Piotr Arendzikowski is an independent illustrator who specialises in designing characters and illustrations for the needs of books, films and games. In his work, he often uses themes related to history, fantasy and science fiction. One of his favourite motives are Polish Winged Hussars, symbolising Poland’s past might and glory. To add variety to his job, he works on his own projects as well as on the commercial ones. Piotr draws inspiration from pictures of old masters: Jacek Malczewski, Rembrandt, Lucien Freud, John Singer Sargent, Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth and many others.
