Roch Kowalski was born in 1957 in Bedzin, Poland. Stage technician and electrician by trade. Painting always had occupied a special place in his heart, which is undoubtedly why he had tried his talent at it. In the years of 1986-87 he had produced some work, but his painter aspirations were cut short by emigration in 1987. It is only recently, upon meeting Andrzej Kubat, a renowned and talented painter and graphic artist, that the desire to create resurfaced and gave fruit to many canvases. Since 2009 his paintings were shown at many Montreal venues.
