Biography

Anna Pajak

Anna Pajak 

Anna Pajak is a painter and printmaker. Her starting point is often a bodily sensation translated into the visual. In her works she explores geometrical spaces and architectural elements such as surfaces, patterns, and depths. Pajak merges color, symbols, and perspectives into a visionary imagery where the abstract meets the figurative. Drawing from modernist female painters, spiritualism, and dreams, Pajak deconstructs and recombines symbols, images, shapes, and architectural fragments in ways that challenge traditional contexts and interpretations. Her large-scale paintings bring a sense of another dimension to life - a reality on the border to dream and fiction.

Anna Pajak, born 1992, lives and works in Stockholm. She graduated with a MFA from The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm in 2020. Anna Pajak has been exhibited at Stene Projects, Stockholm, Konsthallen Kvarnen, Dalarna, and at The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts to name a few. She has been rewarded with grants from Queen Sonja Printmaking Award (2021) and Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts (2019 and 2020).
