Arnold Schwarzenegger is my muse. The idea for Muscles by Milarski first came about when I was asked to take part in Cubicle Creations, where 15 artists were invited to customise a toilet cubicle each in the nightclub Wahoo, in Brighton. Naturally mine depicted a lot of be-muscled beauties, mainly because I wanted the women to have something good to look at whilst they were on the loo! I came up with these tile designs and then duplicated them to cover the walls, drawing on my love of Polish Folk Art with the paper cut aspects of the design and of course my trademark headless muscle men. I thought wait a minute I’m enjoying this and they look pretty good if I do say so myself and thus Muscles by Milarski was spawned!

I leave you with a couple of quotes for you to better understand why William Morris and Arnold Schwarzenegger are my inspiration and idols:
“Have nothing in your house you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
– William Morris
“The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
