Weronika Surma

Born in 1987 in Warsaw, Weronika grew up in Krempachy, south of Poland. In 2013 graduated with honors from Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Currently she is a PhD student at Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. Although involved in a variety of art disciplines, she reserved a special place for ceramics, where, she believes, drawing, sculpture and painting meet in a perfect balance. She stays inspired by human body, sculpting matter with color and plotting corporeality with line.
