Very nice little tour -- thanks.
What's with all the old gaffers on crutches in Bytom? Or is it all-the-rage and a fashion statement?

Moze ktos wie: czy te rzezby na rynku w Krakowie to stala czy tymczasowa instalacja. Podobaja mi sie jako-tako, ale troche za bardzo i bez nawiazania z historia Krakowa (dla mnie) wplywaja na charakter miejsca. I jak sie nazywa artysta?

Sorry about the slight OT, Tom Green, but I got kind of interested about the fate of the sculptures, which you photographed in the Rynek.

Wlasnie Mitoraj. Igor Mtoraj, ktory ma jednak powiazania z Krakowem bo byl studentem Tadeusza Kantora i pierwsza wystawe swoich prac mial w Krystoforach. Wiec dobrze, ze jego praca jest nie tylko na dziedzincu British Museum i temu podobnych peryferiach ale i w Krakowie, ale rownierz dobrze, ze przenosza go z rynku na inna lokacje w Krakowie. Rynek krakowski jest jednym z primo lokacji miejskich na swiecie, i nie trzeba tu nic tak dominujacego dodawac.

Wierzyć się nie chce, że Mitoraj który tworzy te paskudne kicze był studentem Kantora. Jeżeli mają gdzieś pokazywać jego "dzieła", to powinni je prezentować obok Siudmaka jako przykład twórczości dla "inteligencji w pierwszym pokoleniu".

Nice photos.

I was busy during the last days. Sorry for waiting.
Now i have time again. I need around 1 hour to select, resize, photoshop, upload and post 20 pics.

This is my last full day in Poland.
I met jacek_t83 in Bytom and sky`s the limit in Katowice.
The meeting was interesting, i leaned a lot and i had fun.
I have big respect for the 2 guys. They not only love their city they also proove their love. I will explain this later ;)

I will begin with an overview of Katowice.
Thanks to them i was abel to go to the top of the 83m tall Biurowiec DOKP.

Now something about the meeting.
From left to the right:
sky`s the limit, Tom_Green and jacek_t83


During the meeting i learned alot about the work they do for the city. There current project is the cleaning of an old jewish cementary. They showed me the cementary. I am very thankful because this place is unique and very impressive. I will never forget it.


I really respect what they do. Many people talk only about how they love there city. But if they had do something for there hometown they refuse. Sky`s the limit and jacek_t83 are different. They using there free time and work for free to make the place they love better :applause:


I am sorry that my English is not very good. It`s difficult to describe what i think and how impressed i am.



I hope you enjoyed my thread.
