Hi there and thank you for stopping by my studio! My name is Kamil Swiatek and I’m an emerging artist from Toronto, Canada.
As a child I drew every day in class and I feared that I’d run out of places to draw and create art rather than getting in trouble for not paying attention. Though I was a good student, no one got in the way of my artwork because to me, art was everything and it continues to be today. My school notebooks soon became filled with sketches, doodles and drawings.
In my first year of high school I was accepted as an art major and was glued to my sketchbook. There were nights where I painted from dusk to dawn which in time it turned into the art you see today.
Though I am an artist and painter, I have many fields that I’m passionate about including fine art and commercial photography, writing short stories and poetry, sculpting in wood and metal and film. I’m also a huge hockey, video game and film fan along with 1,000 more things I love.
I’m currently attending OCAD University and entering my most exciting and final year. Thesis bound in Fall 2017 where I will produce my newest series of cognitive landscapes. Can’t wait to show you and thanks again for dropping by my studio!
