Piotr Szlachta is a Polish artist who arrived in Belgium in the 1980s. After obtaining a degree in Archaeology and Art History, followed by studies in illustration at the Institut St Luc, he set up a graphic design company in 2000. In 2012 he joined Farm Prod, which gave him the opportunity to work as part of a team and express himself on the large-scale walls of Brussels and other European cities. Piotr Szlachta’s interests centre around nature, which he depicts in a state as untouched by human society as possible. Through landscapes of forests or mountains, he persists in offering a kind of lost paradise: landscapes that we would have liked to have known but that we will soon only see in paintings. He draws his inspiration mainly from regional TV ads, or the great Renaissance masters.
