Emilia Kina

Emilia Kina (B. 1990) is a contemporary visual artist whose practice primarily revolves around painting and photography. In 2015, Kina graduated from the Faculty of Painting from the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. In her work Kina often refers to elements and theoretical concepts of traditional painting, for instance the reoccurring motif In Kina’s work is an image-curtain which Emilia employs as a clear reference to the Renaissance concept of a painting as a window onto the world. Solo exhibitions include Screen, Raster Gallery, Warszawa, PL (2020); Peekaboo, Henryk Gallery: Kraków, PL (2020). Group exhibitions include WABI-SABI, (Upcoming), Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London (2021); NADA Miami x Warsaw 2020, Raster Gallery, Warszawa, PL (2020); Time and foam, Academy of Fine Arts Gallery, Kraków, PL (2020); Innocent Eyes, Weak Arm, Šopa Gallery, Koszyce, SK (2019); Dwelling, Gallery Grey House, Kraków, PL (2019); Changing Views, Kunst im Hafen, Düsseldorf, DE (2019); Primal Fantasies, BWA Contemporary Art Gallery in Katowice, Katowice, PL (2019); Déjà vu, Henryk Galley, Kraków, PL (2018); Triangle, KulturforumAltePost Neuss, Düsseldorf, DE (2017); Artists from Kraków.
