Rycharski gained recognition when, in co-operation with the dwellers of his village, he created a series of murals depicting hybrid animals. The paintings covered the walls of stables, barns and bus stops. Rycharski was dubbed a creator of rural street art. His next projects were also strongly embedded in the reality of the village of Kurówek: Galeria Kapliczka [editor's translation: Roadside Shrine Gallery], Multimedia Wild Boar and Bird Repellent (2011), a triumphal metalwork gate celebrating the 150th anniversary of the abolition of the feudal tenure of land in Poland. Monument to a Peasant, playing with the stereotypes regarding the Polish countryside, has also gained wide renown. It has been on a tour, like a holy image, through Polish villages and cities since 2015.
Iwo Zmyślony notices, Rycharski 'is a social activist and sensitive rogue, who can conjoin spirituality and activism. He proposes an alternative path for contemporary Poland – open to diversity, and at the same time cheerfully conservative, happily celebrating its own provincialism, without getting didactic or sentimental'.
