Bartek Buczek, a professional easel painter, amateur cyclist, bouquinist, creator of video art, installations, author of texts (including the book "Za drogie, za słabe, zbyt trudne" from the collection of Krakow's Bunkier Sztuki). In 2011 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. He received his diploma in the studio of Andrzej Tobis. He enjoys working as an employee of a gallery with broad professional competences (technician, exhibitor, artist, arranger and curator).
Buczek considers himself to be one of the most talented painters of the generation. He was a holder of the National Children's Fund scholarship. In his erudite work, also one that goes beyond the framework of his paintings, one can find a melancholic vibe, rooted in deep existential reflection. He is interested in the human condition in the modern, technicalized world, deprived of calming rituals. He is interested in the human being, and more precisely, in himself.
