Shugo Tokumaru “KATACHI” / 3:04 minutes
Artist name: Kijek/Adamski
We are creating/directing duo based in Warsaw, Poland. We met years ago in high school. We both studied graphics but mostly apart in two different cities. Our interest in creating moving images were increasing over time and at some point we decided it is very practical to team up.
In the meantime Przemek (Adamski) made his first music video (Pink Freud Dziwny jest ten kraj), which happened to be the best Polish music video of 2007 and that award somehow determined our later work. Later we made (amongst others) music videos for Oi Va Voi Everytime a.k.a. the shredding machine music video and Grand Central for Tomasz Stańko Quintet – both were featured on Motionographer some time ago.
