BIO

Bartek Buczek – born in 1987 in Czechowice Dziedzice, graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, painting, with a diploma defended in the studio of Andrzej Tobis (2011). Ex member of the Ośmiornica group. The artist creates monochromatic series of paintings, moving around conceptual painting smoothly, where reality is an important trace of interpretation. In the early stages of his work he was strongly influenced by the Ładnie group along with three acquaintances who were also edu-cated under the supervision of Andrzej Tobis. It is referred to as a “realist tired of reality”, con-stantly seeking new possibilities of expression in his work. Buczek has a conceptual distance to what he does. The artist has been exhibiting since 2008 when he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. He took part in many exhibitions, among others: Black Romanticism at BWA Sokół in Nowy Sącz, Czarny charakter at CSW in Warsaw, Panic Room at CSW Kronika in Bytom, Jaskółczy anxiety at Art Agenda Nova in Krakow. He lives and works in Katowice.
