From his early pieces to his most recent creations, viewers were able to witness the development of Rudziak’s artistic style and the conceptual depth that has defined his practice.

As a recipient of arts council funding and an artist deeply connected to his community, Rudziak’s retrospective showcased not only his talent but also the thriving creative comminity fostered by Hotwalls Studios.

A word from the artist:

‘It’s just incredible how seven years can pass so quickly. I’ve met people from all over the world; It’s been a privilege to listen to their stories, and talk about their lives. It has also enabled me to share my experience as an artist, to elaborate how I operate my practice and how I incorporate my own values into my work. It’s extremely encouraging how receptive people are, to art as force for good and benefit to community, not just a commercial enterprise.’
