Magic Paintings by Dallas Artist Bartosz Beda
Creates Arts About Cultural Matters
Bartosz Beda is a Polish-born artist who lives and works in Dallas, Texas. He is considered as one of the Dallas artists who explore political and social issues in his work that reveal themselves in unspoken meanings. Paintings by Bartosz Beda often have educational aims that reflect on recent governmental and cultural matters.
Beda believes that through his paintings, he exposes on canvas intellectual puzzle of the internal social disagreement of existence and hope and his struggle as well.
When a viewer explores and approaches Beda’s artworks, they are drawn into a state of fear, love, anguish, and other human sensations in conflict. Beda, through his paintings, says that there can be no triumphant end to the search for comfort, no matter how much we might desire for it. Conclusively, the illusion of the search is an absurdity, or so he thinks these paintings discover.
