Bartholomew Hajduk (B. 1990) is a Polish artist living in London. He graduated with a BA in Painting from the Camberwell College of Arts in 2016 and is currently stdying for a MA in Fine Art 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. 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.
