"I have finished my most important album in my 42 years career. My new & 45th album NEO is performed by The London Symphony Orchestra, and when the moment to choose the best artist for the album release in terms of design, concept, immaculate ideas and futuristic mind, it was always clear since the very beginning of the production of NEO, that the artist absolutely unique for to execute this dream, visually speaking, was Michal Karcz. For me, no possible any other visual artist and designer. He is unique, He is absolutely a "maniac" in terms of perfection once he got an idea for my album. Michal speaks the same mental language that I do myself, we are on the same wavelength, so it was totally impossible to find a better artist in his genre, the genre of beautiful, mental and futuristic landscapes, places, sensations, that are only and exclusively in his mind, the mind of the non-stop incredible creator of visual dreams, also dreams where I could easily have some journey from time to time...His works are hauntingly beautiful! I feel so glad to get such amazing man taking part of NEO !".

"If Michal was working in sound and music he would be at the very top of the genres talent and visionary skills as a musician. As a visual artist he creates from this place.This deeper sense that lives inside textual based sound and music is fully alive in his work. For this reason the combination of his work with cover art takes the presentation to a place that seems predestined. His visual worlds are coming from a high plateau that few artists of any medium live and create from".

"Michal's work is like nothing I have ever experienced before. His photography and composition alone strike an immediate emotional response and a desire to peer deeper into the image. Yet this is only the beginning...the true magic begins when his wild, cinematic vision emerges in a flawless digital compositing style that goes far beyond the surreal. A work of art by Michal Karcz is enthrallingly, unmistakably his own...".

"Michal Karcz is among the best graphic artists in today's music scene.
He is on par with big names like Hipgnosis. He just understands our music and perfectly translates it into the finest sleeve design's.I wouldn't want to work with anybody else !".

"Working with Michał was a totally perfect artistic experience. Michał understood my musical ideas and created a world that brought to life a beautiful visual representation of those musical concepts. His art is powerful, moving, spiritual and captivating. Since Reflections was released, the art has been viewed by millions of people and the comments about the artwork have been amazing. I can’t wait to work with Michael on my next project".
"When I first dicovered the art of Michal, I was immediately sure that I wanted to use his cover art for my next album Gateway. Actually the image helped me to find the album title, as well as some of the song titles. Michael's images are stunning, dramatic, detailed, futuristic and rich of fantasy. Images that perfectly capture the essence of my music".
STEFAN STRAND (Between Interval)
"It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Michał. His passion for visual arts is very clear, even down to the tiniest detail. The artwork created by Michał for my album is stunningly epic, but also has a personal meaning to me, for which I’m very thankful".

"Michal is an extremely talented artist, and a great pleasure to work with. He's great at interpreting a musical idea or theme and conveying the music in a visual form. I look forward to working with him again".
ANIL D. (Dahlia's Tear)
"I believe that album covers are very important, extremely expressive and convey the concept of the album. For me, artwork is very important to portray the album. Music and artwork go hand in hand. I knew and heard of Michal Karcz's name and his talent before I met him and that became a great chance for me to work with him. He undoubtedly depicted the music of Dahlia's Tear in a number of creative ways. I am truly happy to work with Michal Karcz thinking of how his ideas and exceptionally beautiful graphics completed the story of the album".

"A genius with vision
Michal, it all begun with a picture, one that I came across online by pure chance; I was looking for an artist designer to work with me on my dream/vision of Empire Music and construct some visuals which were inspired by my music. I was instantly captivated by a strong feeling of emotions at first look on his work, the more I was discovering his universe, the more I was amazed by his skills and technique.
It took us nearly 6 months, with a lots of patience on our side, and 83 different sketches to reach the final version of our first project together.
To me, the result is out of this world, he truly opened my eyes to a better understanding of a strong perception through painting. Every time I look into this artwork cover created for my single track called "INSOMNIACS - The Island" I see a timeless and spiritual vision. I cannot wait to show to this planet our next collaboration, and the parallel worlds that we are creating together. Michal’s imagination has no limits".
