Taking cues from the historic masters of pin-up art, underground fetish illustrators, and cheesecake photography, Krysztof has developed a style that is sharp and clean, sensual and fun. Working primarily in black and white, the work Krysztof creates is strongly graphical in nature, composing in a near calligraphic manner, drawings that are wildly voluptuous and rich in depth. His girlie art is as fun as it is sexy, depicting an inherent sense of humor and playfulness in its ribald sensuality.
