Maja Babič Košir

Maja Babič Košir (1978) graduated and obtained her Master’s degree in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. She completed her postgraduate studies in creative illustration and visual communication techniques at the EINA University School of Design and Art in Barcelona. Her creative process is based on the principle of meditative introspection. She draws subject matter from her environment and personal history, especially from her rich family archives holding a wide array of materials; this enables her to use intuitive artistic interventions in translating her intimate stories into a visual form. She takes regular part in international contemporary art fairs & shows, for example, ARCO Lisboa, SPARK Vienna, Berlin Art Week, Vienna Contemporary, SWAB Barcelona and Zürich Art Weekend 2022. She won several awards and acknowledgments, and her works are housed in private and public collections. She lives and works between Porto and Ljubljana.
