Martin Budny (b.1976) is an artist working in mixed media, performance and installation. Born in Baghdad, Iraq to Polish - Bulgarian parents, Budny grew up in Europe and North East Africa before immigrating to Canada with his family in 1987. Much of his work adapts anthropological strategies to explore creative play and draw poetic narratives from personal and cultural experiences while revealing the process of self construction within the socioeconomic structures that surround everyday life, international travel and constant displacement. Martin Budny is an MFA candidate at Transart Institute in partnership with the University of Plymouth in the UK.
