Wiszniewski has worked with Glasgow Print Studio since the mid-eighties producing editions in all media.
His work can be found in major public collections including Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow; Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Setegaya, Tokyo; Tate Gallery and V & A, London.
