Basia BańdaBORN 1980, Zielona Góra
What makes Basia Bańda’s paintings unique is their format. The artist uses small-format canvases and on them she weaves her intimate, fantastic stories. At the centre of her attention is the subject of the body, of physical experience. Her work is marked by a sharp reduction of motifs – Bańda juxtaposes them, creating short narratives and mini-anecdotes, their titles usually serving as an added point. She also practices photography and is an author of objects. Bańda studied in the Poznań Academy of Fine Arts where she graduated in Prof Jarosław Kozłowski’s studio in 2006. Laureate of the Arteon artist award, fellow of Ministry of Culture and National Heritage scholarships. She lives and works in Zielona Góra.
