BIOGRAPHY:

Łukasz Wodyński was born in 1985 in Bydgoszcz (Poland). He comes from family with strong artistic roots, which have particularly ticked up uncles from his father side:

Józef Wodyński ( 1884 - 1947 ) - polish stage designer and painter, Jan StanisławskiJulian Fałat and Józef Mehoffer student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow,
Jan Wodyński ( 1903 - 1988 ) - polish painter, illustrator, interior decorator inter alia Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw,

The work of Łukasz Wodyński mainly centers around a man and his existence. The artist refers not only to painting or drawing techniques in his work, he is exploiting all kinds of multimedia technologies such as video or photography.He's also carrying out Live Acts (interdisciplinary projects constituting the synthesis of the theater, performance and of visual arts), which are creation of man's conscious existence with drawing process coincidence. The observer becomes a mental creator, immersed in the spectacle issues and the act of creation.

In 1999 Łukasz Wodyński started his education in The School Of Fine Arts in Bydgoszcz on degree subject - graphic. Five years later he get degree certificate in Franciszek Otto atelier, annex to degree's certificate from painting get in Tadeusz Hassek atelier. Since 2005 he continued his education at The Faculty of Fine Arts, Universitas Nicolaus Copernicus in Toruń - the direction of easel painting with painting in architecture speciality. In 2008 he focused on figuration as the object of his observation gradually moving away from the academic convention. In the same year he created an early series of large format drawings, which was a result of formal experiments. In 2009 he created the first painting series "MONUMENTS" and one year later "HUMAN LIGHT"  large format paintings series. Also in 2010 he received an painting honors degree in prof. Piotr Klugowski atelier, an annex to the drawing diploma in prof. Krzysztof Pituła atelier. In 2011 he co- founded "Les Artes" Foundation for Development and Creative Activity in Toruń, where he taught drawing and painting techniques. Since 2011 he also began using his own body as a medium to create Live Acts and one year later he began experimenting with the video and digital photography techniques.
