Bernard Pietraga

Painter and programmer. Born in 1994 in Warsaw, Poland. A son of the graphic artist Katarzyna Pietraga (Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw – works of Henryk Tomaszewski). From the very beginning, fascinated by broadly understood art. At an early age, to develop his interests, he undertook private graphic lessons among Polish architects.

Current finalist of Global Art Awards 2018 – Painting Category.

Sells his works in Gallery 104 Broadway, NY and trough private collectors.

At the age of 19, he took a job as a graphic designer, quickly dealing with designing graphics for innovative clothing. The need for service, however, directed him to the pedagogical studies at the APS in Warsaw, where he developed his artistic skills by designing original plans for art classes for primary school students. By completing his studies for the developed achievements along with his BA thesis he obtained the highest possible note with honors. He used this time in his life to search for his artistic language.

After graduating, he finished his work as a graphic designer and began developing his mathematical interests, which resulted in undertaking work in the field of designing algorithms used to manage complex infrastructures such Dutch Railway Lines. With full commitment, painting appeared just in this period.

Thanks to the active search for new inspirations, his works have become clearer. A determined work towards finding a perfect form and some kind of roughness resulted in creativity that contains mathematical connotations. The developed ability to combine seemingly distant surfaces resulted in an original and distinctive artistic effect. a sense of three-dimensionality.
