Grzegorz Domaradzki, aka ”Gabz” is a graphic designer, creator of posters and illustrations, art and cinema enthusiast.
In addition to the illustrations (both press and portrait), Gabz creates alternative posters for several blockbusters of world cinema.
Graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, where he lives and creates. After receiving his MA degree, he devoted himself to (broadly understood) illustration and computer graphics.
He worked for several reputable advertising agencies, gaining the experience necessary to start working as a freelancer.
His screen prints decorate the houses of collectors all over the world, and his work has gained a large group of dedicated fans.
He has presented his works at many foreign exhibitions, and his group of clients includes Marvel Studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures and various other global brands.
His works are characterized by academic skills, sense of color, attention to composition and detail.
Gabz is no stranger to traditional tools (pencils, markers, oil paints), but he also tries to fully use the potential of the latest technology by frequently combining traditional drawing with computer processing and by creating fully digital graphics often adorned with custom typography.
What is your source of inspiration for your work?
I am inspired by everything that surrounds me academic art, music, literature and, of course, the Internet.
My work would not be what it is without the work of poster illustrators like Bob Peak, Drew Struzan, Waldemar Świerzy, Noriyoshi Ohrai among others.
My work tools
I work on an iMac.
drawing with pencils, pens and markers if I want my work to be based on traditional media.
If the work is going to be a printed screen, I prefer the completely digital style.
My main tool is the Wacom Intuos 4 or Apple pencil.
Why can your work be a source of inspiration for others?
I think (and hope) that apart from noticing likeness, color, and composition skills, the viewer will be able to appreciate storytelling that comes with each design and alternative yet original take on often well-known title/franchise.
