My name is Bartosz Beda, I am an artist, and I'm excited to show you this artistic painting I have for sale here!
I am passionate about painting, and I believe that high-quality art should be available to everyone! That is why I decided to share my artworks here.
I have been painting since I was seven years old. BBC Radio 4 mentioned me as 'one to watch.' The Spokesman-Review said: "Imagine you just found out that a young Picasso, Warhol or Dali just happened to be passing through (...) prior to becoming renowned. Would you want to meet them? See their art?" That's an important reason to pay attention to my art. Please read my full biography here.
Consider being my collector. I create new paintings every day, and I will continue doing it. It is not only my passion but a way of living. I am here to stay and grow with my art.
*** PLEASE READ:
I am continually innovating with my painting, as many artists do. I use mark-making unique to my style by applying thin and thick layers of paint.
I like to finish a painting in one session, and rarely come back to the same painting—some of my sessions last eight to 12 hours, and some as little as 15 mins. I painted artworks that took a month to complete.
My paintings are loose, sketchy, appear to be unfinished, limited in color pallet or colorful, and have details that hold the entire piece together. Often collectors say that my work, even with bold brushstrokes, is photographic.
The artwork you see is a one-of-a-kind Original Painting. There is only one painting like this in the world. Get in touch to purchase it today.
