Iva Troj Biography

Award-winning contemporary artist, Iva Troj combines traditional painting techniques with post-modern elements to create otherworldly Renaissance-style works that challenge cultural norms..

Her work is a reaction to a world where women often feel vulnerable. Both in protest, and to highlight the strength of fairer sex, the artists’ work features powerful images of women finally freed from the oppression of the male gaze.

Troj’s passion for contemporary and traditional Japanese art and culture is reflected in her work via the host of unusual characters and totems she uses to populate her landscapes. Her highly-detailed, dreamlike pieces are always a masterclass in utilising light and shade.

In 2016, Troj was named Contemporary Art Excellence Artist of the Year. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and lives in London.
