Hanna Kaminski

Hanna Kaminski was born in San Francisco, she lives and works in Berlin. She started studies of Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig in the class of Michael Riedel. She then continued her studies at the Berlin University of the Arts and graduated as Meisterschülerin of Valérie Favre. In her artistic work, Hanna Kaminski uses the medium of painting to free herself from pre-existing motivic ideas, which allows her to find her own and new formal language. Traces of overpainted layers speak of the time and the process of her work. Always on the border of the recognizable, already seen, the figures elude to all to quick interpretations. In 2023 she was Finalist for the Ketterer Art Masterclass Prize, in 2021 she was nominated for the Hans-Purrmann Prize and in 2019 she was Finalist for the Art Award junger westen. Her works have already been shown in solo exhibitions at studio4berlin, by Galerie Schwarz Contemporary, Berlin and Galerie Philipp Anders, Leipzig.
