Marek's love for film was not sparked in a cinema, nor thanks to a camera that was a gift from his father or an old 8mm windup found in his grandfather’s attic. His approach was much broader and indirect – through Lego. With no interest of instruction manuals, he utilised the building blocks through his own imagination, created his own heroes in his own worlds.
Just a year after Marek jumped into the world of advertising, he won bronze Cannes Lion and a gold at YDA in 2018. Since then, he has added awards from the D&AD, Clio, Epica award and Golden drum festivals to his collection. He has also achieved a prestigious award at the Ciclope Festival, where he won the gold for directing in 2020. So far, he's collaborated with brands such as Ikea, Telekom, Zalando and McDonald's.
Marek's style straddles two worlds. The first is full of absurd humour, colourful art direction and joyful characters. The second is much more serious and cinematic, where he creates strong emotional stories and captures human nature with great sensitivity. These two styles are not mutually exclusive, on the contrary. It is evident that Marek is able to express the complexity of life in his work.
