About Barbara Kroll

The theme depends on the situation. I am especially interested in unusual combinations of objects, funny motifs, and interesting colors.


I visited an art high school and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts.


Also have I participated in several artist competitions in the last years. For example I was in the final round or one of the long/shortlisted/finalist artists at the Palm Award (2013), National Portrait Gallery: BP Portrait Award (2016), Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize (2016), Charly Smith Prize (Anthology 2016), Derwent Art Prize (2016), Luxembourg Art Prize 2016.
2. Prize in Painting of the International Contemporary Art Competition Miami 2017
FIRST AWARD for PAINTING on PAPER, Osten Biennal of Drawing Skopje 2018, Macedonia
