Andrzej Mleczko was born in 1949 in Tarnobrzeg. He studied architecture at the Krakow University of Technology. He made his debut in 1971 in the “Student” weekly. Ever since that time he has been drawing satirical cartoons, designing posters and sets and also engaged in art and commercial graphic. He is an author of over 20 thousand cartoons and illustrations which were published in several dozen journals and magazines. His work collections were published in 46 books and albums. Artist’s oeuvre was presented during 125 solo exhibitions in Poland and 30 abroad.

In 1983 he opened his own Author’s Gallery in the centre of Krakow at św. Jana Street. The gallery was meant as a short-term experiment but because of a great interest of the public it has been functioning until this day. It stocks the newest works as well as his archive drawings, posters, postcards and publications. It also sells various gadgets with artist’s drawings. The guests of the gallery have an opportunity of meeting the author and getting a dedication with an autograph .

The gallery holds exhibitions of Andrzej Mleczko’s graphic art and deals with mail-order sales. In 2000 a branch of the gallery opened in Warsaw at Marszałkowska Street 140. The interior designed by Mleczko himself is spacious enough to run social and promotional events there. The visitors can watch animated films and have a coffee.
