JERZY Stepniak nasceu em Varsóvia onde sempre ali viveu. Estudou arquitetura na cidade natal, dedicando-se atualmente à pintura. Diz que gosta de pintar as ruas de Varsóvia, mas que não sabe em concreto qual a rua que retrata. O resultado acaba por ser uma rua imaginária. Sobre Portugal, confessa que nunca cá esteve. Assume-se como pouco viajado. Quando pensa na cidade do Porto visualiza um porto à beira-mar.
Por Paulo Moreira Lopes
