Sumski is one of those people who still consider a forest to be their home. A place of enduring inspiration, a resting-place from the world which has forgotten a forest and moved on into a virtual reality. His paintings are like a breath of fresh air in this virtual reality and in the urban setting alike. Virtual reality is increasingly subservient to neoliberal capitalism which is unremitting in trying to convince us that it is the only possible world. This is the freshness that he brings. A gentle breeze gently combing the treetops illuminated by the Moon and the stars foreboding new unknown worlds which Sumski portrays in his paintings. Wherever he travels, many light years afar, the affection and humaneness is ever present because the act of painting is a quest for a human being within himself. His works confirm that there are other options and it indicates that, together, we can dream up anything we want if we are receptive to new ideas. Thus we can convey them to the level of collective reality which will be formed in harmony with our aspirations and desires.

His sphere of activity is illustration, but not solely illustration. He has illustrated several picture-books, conceived and produced books-objects which tell a story directly, without the presence of the text. The music that he creates is also a kind of an illustration of a story that he’s telling in everything he does.
His modes of expression, both digital and traditional, are versatile and unconventional. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rijeka, department of sculpture. He is currently employed at the Puppet Theatre in Rijeka. A wonderful place where he can accomplish his aspirations. A place where children and adults, who haven’t forgotten how to be children again, encounter.

Street art, painting of the murals, is for him a new challenging field of performance as his works communicate with various profiles of passers-by. He has participated in numerous workshops as well as in group exhibitions.
