Michał Bałdyga

born 24 April 1980 in Warsaw

I graduated from high school at the Exhibition Studio of the State Secondary School of Fine Arts in Bielsko-Biała. I have gained my experience in the field of art education - graphics, the University of Silesia in Katowice, branch in Cieszyn. I graduated in Artistic Education in 2006 and in Graphic Design in 2010 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań. I deal with: sculpture, performance, painting, graphic design. In my works, the boundaries between real and symbolic action are blurred. The first stage of my work was corporeality and its asymmetry. I dealt with asymmetry looking for its source in my life, past and present. At the same time, I created my own kind of martial art, fighting the mundane barriers that life puts on people. Ritual struggle and victory shows the possibility of building your own self-esteem by creating the ritual of life. My life experiences are my source and inspiration. I study the attitude of my person to the events around me and to myself, to the problems of physical, mental and mental barriers in life. Working with my past and event memory, I create a therapeutic space for my development. In my works, memory is not only an inspiration, but most of all it is a material, it becomes an essential content. I am looking for an answer to the question about the relationship between the past and the future. My biography, my past and her memory are part of these works, not separate from them. I take advantage of the special experiences recorded in my memory, bearing witness to my individual manifestation in this world. I create a kind of self-portrait of memory.

I am interested in the problems of Culture and Civilization. My interests focus on the issue of SACRUM, PROFANUM. I'm looking for the border between them. Focusing on symbols and on the influence and meaning of colors and shapes, as well as careful observation and contemplation of phenomena, allows me to find, recognize and create a new ritual of life. This ritual, unrelated to any religion or denomination, becomes a ritual in its pure form that allows you to contemplate the Work of Creation and the rhythm of your own existence.
