Anka Dabrowska is an artist, illustrator and designer. Now she’s currently unable to work as a bartender, she spends her time working on her art from her studio in Walthamstow.
Anka was born in Warsaw, Poland and graduated from the University of Northumbria in Newcastle with a Masters Degree in Fine Art. “My practice is based on an ongoing research into urban living and architecture. I am interested in how the public intersects with the urban landscape. My drawings activate a fresh narrative on the urban and rural landscape, with issues surrounding identity, place, culture and self isolation during the Covid-19 crisis.”
“Focusing on the concept of shelter as a fortress of our bodies; an extension of ourselves. Questions about vulnerability and protection, the housing crisis, personal stories and the current physical sensations of anxiety.”
