My name is David Wratny and I graduated from painting and graphic prints in 2012, under the supervision of professor Branko Suhy, at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design at the University of Ljubljana.
I continued the studies at the same institution but I’ve changed the catedra and now I take courses of Video and New Media, with professor Srečo Dragan.
Ever since childhood I showed an interest in drawing and items related with it. In high school I had my first exhibition in the schools gallery of the Gimnasium Piran, where I exhibited mostly anatomical drawings.
Now my primary area of interest is the human body and its behavior in the space in correlation with other bodies. I much rather see the world it in black and white, so I prefer monochrome graphics gravure, but I don’t mind to see and use the flat colours of the woodcuts.
Sometimes I write poetry and I’m trying to integrate and interpret it through videos, I also like to play with the famous literary works and remake them in a short 3minutne (or less) videos.
My motto: Always fight till the end.
