Piotr Kachny was born in 1978 in Kluczbork where he lives today (Poland).
He graduated from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Artistic and Pedagogical department, diploma in painting) and National College of Art and Design (Dublin).
His paintings are dealing with artistic photography and photomontage. Besides, music, psychology, philosophy are also reflected in his art as part of his inspiration.
Both in painting and photography, he is interested most in the human figure and the shapes. He often uses images and photos of known people as an excuse for building an image. The most important in his artworks is what is very often invisible at first glance: emotions, feelings, state of mind, character etc. In addition, the artworks show very often the sensual side of a human being - the side that has been suppressed due to the interaction of culture, related conventions including education and upbringing.
Moreover, all sorts of attitudes and patterns of social behavior are being explored in the artworks of Adam.
