Original painting in oil on canvas.
"I produced this work during my artist-in-residence at GoggleWorks, Center for the Arts in Reading, PA. It was 10 weeks residency, where I develop a new body of works, new approaches and discoveries in painting.
This painting was inspired by promotional/poster images of GoggleWorks factory that was fully operation until late nineties. I liked the motion of the image that allowed me to combine abstract and figuration together."
We discovered Bartosz Beda at his BA degree show at Manchester School of Art in 2011. He immediately attracted an avid collector base and on more than one occasion his work sold out completely. A series of accolades ensued – inclusion in 2012’s Catlin Art Guide for the most promising emerging artists in the UK. He soon progressed on to a Masters program at Manchester and was then short-listed for the Title Art Prize, the Door Prize, and Saatchi New Sensations 2012. Beda won the esteemed Towry Award for the Best of North of England in 2012. Also in 2012 he was awarded a six-month scholarship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, Germany (the same residency that Gerhard Richter was awarded early in his career). Beda has held solo exhibitions in Madrid, Colombia, and Manchester.
