Xenia Fink

Xenia Fink’s recent work consists of drawings layered in boxes resembling traditional dioramas of the 19th century.  In addition, she creates installations and objects such as marquees, shower cubicles, and fabric wallpapers, with which she imbues inherent connotations of a product or artifact to juxtapose with her drawings. She draws and silkscreens prints with content ranging from strong narrative to more conceptual and ornamental material approaches.

Xenia Fink (born 1979 in Sao Paulo, Brazil) was raised in Brazil and Mexico before moving back to Germany to study Illustration at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. Recent exhibitions include group shows at the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Berlin; Galerie Schuster, Berlin and Miami; and solo shows at the Galerie Volkspark and Halle and Galerie Schuster, Berlin.
