Mariusz Szmerdt Member Since January 2014 Artist Statement I'm an ink painter, a member of the "International Chinese Calligraphy & Ink Painting Art Society" (ICCPS), Tokyo, Japan. I was introduced at a young age to Asian culture and subsequently to the martial arts. I cite as my mentors nature, intuition, and books. I also finds a lot of inspiration for my art in meditation. My paintings are in the collections of many famous Masters of martial arts.
