 Pure Sure was published during the time of the Polish transformation (1989–1990), which resulted in the development of significant tools of expression and a portrayal of a mood of absurdity and distance. Having observed the socio-political changes taking place, Mazur created a surreal

comic book magazine, employing distortion and symbolism. The socio-political atmosphere and everyday difficulties inspired Mazur, who did not agree with living ’under the Soviet boot’, unable to live a normal life. His political commitment, expressed both visually and poetically, in music and

performance, as well as through his individual and Totart Formation’s work, is an often-perverse commentary on life in the reality at the time.
