Łukasz Wodyński was born in 1985 in Bydgoszcz (Poland). He comes from family witch strong artistic roots, in which have particularly marked:

In 2000 Łukasz Wodyński started his education in The School Of Fine Arts in Bydgoszcz on degree subject - graphic. In 2005 he get degree certificate in Franciszek Otto 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 2010 he received an painting honors degree in prof. Piotr Klugowski atelier. In 2011 he co-founded "Les Artes" Foundation for Development and Creative Activity in Toruń, where he taught drawing and painting techniques. He also collaborates with various artists, illustrating music releases, creating videos and and creating the visual sound projects.

Wodyński's body of work is multi-layered. First of all he focuses around the subject of man and the deep existential, emotional and spiritual layers associated with him. It also touches the problems of the postmodern world, realizing the scale of the challenges it had to face with. He draws attention to danger for the further development of civilization, emphasizing the metaphysical value of the individual unit as the unique essence of being. Through the visual language artist is searching for analogies and connections between the real world, technology and spirituality.  Body of work is for him a field of research on the interpenetration of ephemeral, emotional reality with tangible, material and alternative, digital.

Apart from classical visual techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpture artist uses many kinds of new media techniques like installation, sound, digital photography as well as video. He's also carrying out Live Acts (interdisciplinary projects constituting the synthesis of performance and visual arts using his own body as a medium). Despite the expressive form derived from the New Figuration or Viennese Actionism artist also takes inspiration from The Renaissance and The Baroque art using for example multi-layered painting methods, tenebrism and luminism techniques.
