Although Roman Klonek (1969, Kattowitz/Poland) was born in Poland during the communist period, his childhood was strongly influenced with comic and cartoon culture. In the 90es he moved to Duesseldorf and studied Graphic Arts. During this time he was co-founder of the artist group "Die Tapezisten" and the Comic Zine "Herrensahne" which has been issued 14 times to date. Almost in the end of his study he did his first woodcut printing. Quickly he fell in love with this medium and maintains his loyalty to this day.
