Hi! Welcome to my website!

I do a lot of different art, but mostly paintings, illustrations, animations, comics, videos, and anything else that's shiny! I'm originally from Poland but now I freelance out of my studio in Tokyo, Japan along with my wife Kana. If you are curious how I make my art have a look at my YouTube channel!

Mateusz Urbanowicz

I was born (1986) and raised in Silesia, Poland. Studied electronic engineering until I found out that making art can be more than a weird hobby while working with the makers of graphics tablets: WACOM. I finished Computer Graphics at Polish Japanese Institute of Information Technology, and thanks to a Japanese government scholarship, moved to Kobe, Japan to study animation and comics. Graduated with honors from Kobe Design University with a short animated movie called "Right Places".

From 2013 I have been working as a full-time background artist in the Comix Wave Films animation studio in Tokyo. Taking part in making of TV commercials, animated TV series (for example "Space Dandy") and feature-length animated movies (like "Your Name.").

I moved to a freelance artist career to focus on my original projects in 2017 and started working on the "Tokyo Storefronts" watercolor illustration album published in April 2018. I continue to make my own art (comics, illustrations, paintings, animations), online content (YouTube videos etc.) as well as taking part in bigger projects (short animations) and doing commision work from time to time.
