Anna Kruhelska is a visual artist and practising architect from Lodz in Poland. She has worked as an architect on a vast array of major projects in Russia, Malasia, and the UK, all of which has formed her understanding of form, symmetry and space, and given her a knowledge which has clearly allowed her to cultivate a congruous and innovative contemporary practice.
Anna Kruhelska states of her practice; “I am a qualified architect and for the last 14 years I’ve been working professionally. I love my job, but at some point I realized that I needed a project which would be more artistic and would give me the opportunity to creatively express myself and explore ideas I find interesting. I love minimalism and simplicity and I am fascinated by patterns, texture and the play of light and shadow. Wanting to combine all these inspirations, I began to experiment with pleating fabrics but after few months, I turned to paper which I used to work with a lot during my university years. While there are many limitations of paper I discovered that it gives me a lot of creative freedom and possibilities. That’s how it all began”.
