Robert Sochacki has been related to painting since his early days as a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, later as a set designer in a theatre and finally as a video performer / interactive artist. After completing his PhD he is a fellow assistant in the painting department of Gdańsk’s Academy (art in public space studio). His projects were supported by polish Ministry of Culture and National Hertiage.
He calls his works ”video paintings” and usually presents them as large-format projections. In his artistic research he concentrates on light art – reflecting on the light as a medium and material of an artwork. What inspires him the most are the stories of everyday life and memories that shape perception and interplay between the artwork, the artist and the viewer.
This year, from April to September, during his art residency in Tunisia he is developing both artistic and didactical projects in Tunis and Djerba.
