„Jan Dziaczkowski’s collages permeate with the atmosphere of past eras. These creations thrive on fragments of works by known and unknown masters, combined with finesse and taste. Dziaczkowski’s collages surprise with their humorous contrast of the juxtaposed elements, giving the images created this way new meanings and various moods” – wrote Mieczysław Wasilewski in the introduction to the first publication devoted to the artist's creations, who was in his mid 20s at the time. (Ha!art, Kraków, 2007).
