Piotr Urbaniec is the 2016 winner of the 15th edition of Hestia Artistic Journey contest. He's graduated an MFA at the Academy of Fine Arts (Warsaw), Dept. of Media Art / Studio of Spatial Activities under the direction of Miroslaw Balka. The aim of the Studio is to identify and shape the creative space in which we move and act. Studio’s activities transcend the Academy bounds, stressing the social and political problems. Students explore the cultural sensitivity searching for artistic identity independent from the pressure of success. Defining their places, exchanging points of view with other spaces’ representatives, they create communication zones In 2016, Urbaniec was invited to feature work in the Bank Pekao Project Room (Meteorological Exercises) at CCA Ujazdowski Castle, Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw). Exhibitions include: Uciec i Wrócić / Escape and Return at the Dawid Radziszewski Gallery (Poland); Streetlight at Roman Susan Art Space (Chicago). He was awarded the Młode Wilki 14 Prize (Young Wolves 14), and was nominated for an APH 2015 award.
