Dominik Lejman was born in 1969 in Gdańsk, Poland. He attended the Academy of Fine in Arts in Gdańsk from 1989-1993 and received his Master of Arts degree from the Royal College of Art in London in 1995.
Lejman is known for his time-lapse paintings that combine acrylic paintings and video performances. This technique allows the spectators to see how moving video images sink into the structure of abstract canvas – they are not only a passive background for the projections, but these two forms seem to fuse into a new art genre. Lejman additionally deals with themes regarding human individuality and anonymity in the midst of the modern, technological world and the blurred line between reality and constructed fantasy.
Lejman’s work has been featured in individual and collective exhibitions at numerous locations around the world including LUXE Gallery (New York), Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Zak Gallery (Berlin), and Centre for Contemporary Art Zamek Ujazdowski (Warsaw). He lives and works in Gdynia, Orłowo and Poznań, Poland.
RxArt partnered with Dominik Lejman to install his work, Polar Bear Video at the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center in New York.
