Anna OkraskoBORN 1981, Warszawa
Anna Okrasko’s graduation project, My Professor Paints in Stripes and I Paint in Dots, conducted in 2004 in Prof Leon Tarasewicz’s painting studio at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 2004, is an emphatic statement. Okrasko is interested in feminist issues; she approaches them in a fresh and ironic manner. She is equally mischievous in tackling the theme of the medium of the canvas, especially its embroilment in freemarket mechanisms. In 2005, Okrasko served a postgraduate internship at the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts' Interdepartmental Intermedia Studio. She currently studies at the Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam University (since September 2009). She lives in Rotterdam.
