Q&A

If there was one piece of art you could feature in, which would it be and why?

I would like to be on a horse riding through time, in a Salvador Dali painting.

Who inspires you and why? An artist, a family member, someone current or historical?

There are so many things and people that inspire me. Mostly it is about the exciting opportunities and situations that arise from living in the moment, and getting the most out of life.

What are your cultural aspirations? What do you still want to see, do and achieve?

I would like to create a programme to support the often overlooked emerging artists of music, art, and literature in Poland. If these amazing talents were nurtured, they could become key players in the international arts scenes.

What are your favourite cultural cities in the world and why?

Krakow is incredibly pretty, it is so untouched in a way that always touches me. Then of course there is London, sometimes I cannot believe that I ever moved away and left that city behind, it is so rich - there is always a surprise waiting for you around the next corner. And finally New York, I find it so decadent, with the most incredibly interesting people.

What are you up to at the moment and where can we find it?

I am working on the 2014 Twilight Polo Gala in aid of the great charity, War Child:
