Born in Poland in 1984, Bartosz Beda relocated to the UK in 2008. After graduating with a MA in Fine Art in 2011, he was selected for the 2012 Catlin Art Guide as one of the most promising emerging artists in the UK. In Beda's words: "My paintings explore the relation between daily life and human nature. I perceive humanity as a chocolate cake, where beneath the 'iced' surface lies those more intriguing and challenging mixtures, with fears and social pathology. I like to explore political issues in my work. These issues often expose themselves in hidden meanings. Art has often educated and opened eyes to social and political issues."
