Michał BudnyBORN 1976, Leszno
Michał Budny uses cardboard and paper to create formally ascetic objects modelled upon real-life artefacts, the space surrounding them, and the phenomena filling them. Due to their material modesty and handmade quality, Budny's work exude a home-like air of emotional closeness, investing that which previously could be regarded as empty space with form and meaning. Budny is a graduate of a fine arts high school and has no academic degree in art, which has not prevented him from pursuing an interesting creative path. His work have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, e.g. Prague Biennale (2005), Triennale Kleinplastic Felbach (2007), or Manifesta 7 (2008).
