OTO HUDEC ~ FLYING FISH


Slovak multi-media artist Oto Hudec created his recent work in USA, South Korea, Cabo Verde, Portugal and Slovakia. He creates videos, murals, animations, sculptures and works for public spaces about immigration, refugees and the impact of globalization on the environment. His projects often involve utopic perspective as a way to shed a light on food production, industrial landscape, or decline of bees. While interested in ecological living, food production and sustainability, instead of searching for new scientific solutions, he is looking into how nomadic and indigenous people achieved this. He often cooperates on projects with children and youth from disadvantaged communities.

Since 2013 he works on on the participative project with Roma children in Slovakia Projekt Karavan together with artist Daniela Krajčová.

PhD at the AFAD, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Member of creative team MAP - Make Art with Purpose.

Represented by Gandy gallery.

Finalist of Oskar Čepan prize for young artists in 2012, Slovakia
