He pursues fully autonomic art, where the main trail is multidirectional perception and criticism of modern reality. A landmark of Wasilewski's art is its technological form (systems composed of many cables, monitors, displays and mechanisms), conveying humanistic essence with the moral message (political, social, ecological, catastrophic). In such constructed transmission, the aesthetics of global culture – both mass and niche – constitutes an inevitable part. Omnipresent pop culture, remade and placed in a new way, in Wasilewski's works takes on a sinister dimension. It also triggers artist's autoreflection, an artist, who, in almost every work, asks questions about the point of artistic work, 'paintings' reduplication and creative replication. That is why, i.a., his realisations are always extremely personal, what together with their cultural and theoretical background constitutes a complex, autoironical when interpreted, but at the same time formally effective art.
One of the most distinguishing features of Andrzej Wasilewski is criticism and deconstruction of mass culture, understood as a collective agreement, illusion, or even a lie. In Wasilewski's works this deconstruction puts on a form of fake mask of the circle of Western Civilisation, which the author tears off. The artist traces its falsifications through the quotations from the official media iconography and different fields such as high culture or politically correct media, negated or ignored (video games, subcultures aesthetics, anarchy). Very often all those themes fulfill each other, creating a multileveled story about the modern world.
