Klara Pokrzywko is an international conceptual artist who was born in Poland (1980), raised in Algeria and Canada, and has worked in North- America, Australia, Europe and Asia.

Over the past 10 years, Pokrzywko’s work has drawn inspiration from her continuous study of the human mind, body and behavior. Her conceptual compositions are a unique fusion of art and science, finding creative inspiration in the human form merged with the scientific manipulation of raw materials such as copper, silver and silk.

Klara Pokrzywko’s body of work has been exhibited worldwide in various contexts including galleries in London, Brussels, Los Angeles, the Island6 Art Center in Shanghai (2008-2009), the Zendai Museum of Modern Art in China (2008), the 2009 Montreal Biennale, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum- where in 2008 her work won an honor of distinction.

Pokrzywko has obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction and Honorary Mention from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, and has attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD), Halifax, Canada, where she studied with the renowned Canadian sculptor John Greer. She has also completed a Master in Arts Management at City University London, UK, under the supervision of British artist Professor Emeritus Eric Moody. Pokrzywko is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, notably decorated by the Canadian Polish Congress for her outstanding social work in 2007.

Currently, Klara Pokrzywko is based in Los Angeles and Montreal, dividing her time between the two cities with her life and art partner, cinematographer, Pawel Pogorzelski.
