30 ARTIST PROFILE Stas Bartnikas

The eye of a glacier, 2019, 90 x 120 cm

Stas Bartnikas

T

he sweeping aerial photography of Stas Bartnikas presents an exciting viewpoint on the world around us. Combining a love of travelling with a passion for aviation, he has visited over 20 countries to capture them from above, flying in light aircraft and helicopters. His landscapes are often presented through abstract compositions, revealing shapes and patterns in nature as seen from the sky. Ripples in waves and lines in sand sprawl across the image like brush marks on a canvas, while contrasts in colour of land and sea merge like splashes of

ink. The artist describes Mother Nature as ‘the most sophisticated painter’, a sentiment which is reflected through his artistic documentation of the world. Throughout his much-published career, Bartnikas has won over 130 awards for his work in such prestigious contests as NatGeo Photo Travel, International Photography Awards, Tokyo International Foto Awards and PX3. In London he is represented by Avivson Gallery, which will host a solo exhibition of his work in May this year. stasbart.com sb@stasbart.com
