IN SEARCH OF HIS OWN PATH Bogumil Kazimierz Staciwa’s creative development dates back to the 1980. Hi has been interested in painting , drawing, sculpture since then, whence the choice of education at the Art Teaching department , with gave him a solid technique foundation. His work as an Art teacher allowed a continuation of his interest. Hi participated in numerous plein air events end exhibitions . In 1994 hi was awarded the first prize in the local contest „ New Talents of Kielecczyzna”. After graduating from the Art Teaching Academy , a division of the University of Silesia in Cieszyn , Poland, Bogumil set off on his own creative path. Hi exhibited his works in Jedrzejow , Krakow, Bielsko Biala . Since hi moved to London in 2001 , painting has been Bogumil’s sideline, however, hi has continued interesting work in a different style- full of bright colours, light, dynamics . “ I am not afraid of pure , vivid, strong colours anymore, they from paintings full of movement and exuberance.” In 2006 hi made his debut with the first London exhibition “ Summer 2006” in Glaister’s Bar & Restaurant. Bogumil Staciwa’s next exhibition takes place in the Artista restaurant. In 2008 hi had exhibition in The Grove Gallery. And now the newest works are presented- the expression of continuous artistic pursuit.
