Jakub Benda is a multimedia Polish artist. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Graphic College and Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. In addition to his degrees in painting and graphic design Prague, he studied abstract painting in the Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien. Benda’s artistic practice focuses on an experimental approach to sound where he aims to find a “fluid zone” between his practice in fine arts and his work in sound. He experimented with ASMR and Auditory-tactile synthesis and merging the two methods during his stay in Art Quarter Budapest. Benda aims to create a collective experience through the performances he creates, where a world of visual art meets that of auditory ones.
