About

Tina Umer b.1991, Slovenia
Based in Gothenburg, Sweden

In my works I discover themes such as memory, personal symbolism, layering matter and meaning. I work from a photographic standpoint but blend it with painting, drawing, and textile art. Received my MfA from Photography at Academy Valand in Gothenburg, Sweden, and BA from Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
