Assistant Professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). Szyhalski came to the United States in 1990 from his native Poland to teach at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and has since maintained a furious pace of teaching, publishing, performing, and exhibiting his work internationally; and winning grants and awards. Possessing two MFAs from the Academy of Visual Arts in Poznan, Poland--one in drawing, the other in poster design--Szyhalski began producing art on the Internet in 1995.
His work The Spleen has been featured in numerous publications, including Wired, Hotwired, I.D., The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Applied Arts, Public Art Review, Details, Speak, Blvd., WEB, Minnesota Monthly, City Pages, Star Tribune, and Pioneer Press.
At MCAD, Szyhalski mentors graduate students and teaches graphic design, illustration, Fine Arts, and Liberal Arts, including his popular "POLIT-PROP: Art for the Broad Masses of the People," through which students study the historical and contemporary concepts of propoganda art.
