About Aleksandra Zawada

I am visual artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
I am a painter. I work mainly in painting and photography.
In both disciplines, I work in series closed by title.
Drawing is a core to my practice. It allows me to immerse in my inner world, as well as to test the limits of simple materials that I use to make artwork.
Since 2016, I have also been working in printmaking and since 2018 I sculpt in clay.
My works are in the collection of the Royal Scottish Academy and in the private collections in UK, Italy and Switzerland.


2007-2011 BA (Hon) Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh
