Yanna Kubic is a European interdisciplinary artist who works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, interactive art, installations and virtual art. She began painting at the age of 14 and spent a short time at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. However, influenced by the anarchic element in the work of Katarzyna Kozyra, Kubic decided to cut short her academic career and pursue independent study in Berlin. As an active member of kunsthaus Tacheles and influenced by the philosophy of Lyotard whom she met shortly before his death in Paris, Kubic's work began to explore the manner in which communities and individuals form independently credible narratives about their existence. Her recent work is a long term study in the forging of online identity. Kubic is currently based in London and Berlin.
