Biography

Piotr Forkasiewicz
Piotr was born in Opole, Poland in 1978. During his years of commercial work he was involved in many interesting projects and in a great scope of graphic activities, from graphic and industrial design to creating models, textures and scenes for animations, films and television. He worked with the famous Platige Image Studio on a few animated films and with the Planetarium of Copernicus Science Centre on the first Polish production in the fulldome technology – “Dream to fly”. But his greatest passion is still military illustration – mainly aviation and naval art. Throughout his teenage years he spent as much time around aircraft as he could. However, when he read an article about James Dietz in a magazine and saw the aviation art of Polish artist – Jaroslaw Wrobel, he discovered the way to finally express his passion for aviation. Although starting with pencils and paints, he soon found the computer as an ideal tool to create the images that he had in mind. Using advanced 3D software he painstakingly built his own 3D Lancaster model and then used it to create a series of striking images. He didn’t realise at the time that something that started as personal project would eventually almost take over his working life. His work was an instant hit with veterans and enthusiasts alike and during last few years he has created dozens of Lancaster images for families and veterans themselves. He creates illustrations for books, magazines and collectors and his works are in many private collections in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA. Piotr lives in Czestochowa, Poland with wife Agnieszka and two sons Mikolaj and Tymon.
