Dawid Planeta grew up in Poland in an artistic family. His father was a photographer and his mother, an art teacher. He thus soon developed an artist’s eye and yet, it was industrial design that oriented his early studies. At the age of 20, his education and artistic appetite caught up with him. He allowed himself to be won over by his true passions – art, photography, psychology, mythology, symbolism, and the mysterious world of the subconscious. He uses various digital tools, including digital cameras and image-processing software, to create introspective, uncanny, and fascinating artworks. At the intersection between photography, collage, and painting, his artworks take root in reality to attain an intimate world made up of dreams and illusions. Through his work, Dawid Planeta creates symbols and metaphors in order to communicate with the spectator’s subconscious.
