Bart Hajduk is a Polish artist living in London. He graduated in Painting at Camberwell College of Arts (2016) and currently studies on the MA Fine Art programme at the Slade School of Art (2022).
Bart’s practice is influenced by the realm of personal mythologies, memories, sexuality, spirituality and cosmology, as well as Polish culture and rural sensibility. In his drawings and paintings Bart creates sensuous and intimate dreamscapes populated with animals, animal-human hybrids, plants, planets and biological forms. In this imagined reality, or reality filtered through the world of imagination and dreams, the boundaries between human and non-human perceptions become blurred and merge together. Part self-portraits, part mystical dreamscapes, his works reflect a desire to re-engage oneself with the natural world and the wider universe around us.
