Katarzyna Roman was born in Wrocław. She graduated from printmaking and graphic design department at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. For over four years now, she has been working as a professional printmaker. The experience gained during her time at the Academy helps Katarzyna in her everyday work as graphic designer, illustrator and printmaker. She focuses on combining elements of seemingly unrelated worlds. She draws plants, animals and architecture. All of her etchings are made of a large number of dots. Mastering this intricate technique allows her to focus on details which are the essential elements of the whole piece of art.
The residential exchange for graphic artists is organised by the City of Wrocław in cooperation with the City of Dresden. The Artist In Residence Programme AIR Wro is a partner of this year’s residencies. Katarzyna Roman’s residency at Grafikwerkstatt in Dresden took place from 27th Fabruary till 25th March 2017.
