Born and raised in Poland, Dawid recalls being drawn to the world of
images as a small boy.
"I often browsed through my dad's vast library of books
on art and architecture," he says. "I could spend whole evenings doing
just that. Rarely reading anything, I looked at the pictures while
absorbing the story each image told me."
Dawid became fascinated by computer games in his late
teens and he started doing his own graphics. By the mid-1990s, he was
creating 3-D images and posting them online. That eventually led to
work on The Longest Journey PC game in Norway. Later, he moved to the
United States to work on Unreal 2 and other computer games at Legend
Entertainment. Now back in Scandinavia, Dawid runs a small one-man
business called Eon Works.
Along with his fabulous space images, Dawid also creates
some killer abstract, conceptual and other types of art, like this
surreal sample, Endless Opposites.
Dawid is also interested in health and nutrition,
computer programming, anthropology and the paranormal. But art is both
his business and his passion.

Getting into the right mental state has always been important to me.
Without it, the creation process feels shallow or even empty. You have
to sort of "be there" - inside your creation - to make it good."

weekends back in the mid-'90's. Colony has turned out to be a popular
wallpaper, and I've received many fan e-mails from people around the
world because of it."
