About the artist:
Wawi Navarroza is a Filipino contemporary artist known for her works in photography, actively exhibiting in galleries and museums both in the Philippines and internationally. Her images explore Self and Surrounding as seen in her works in contemporary landscape, constructed tableaus and self-portraits. Informed by crises and natural disasters, her works transmute personal experience to the symbolic, probing locations, materials and constant movement, synthesizing these all in the artist’s studio; all perhaps to mirror a path to understanding a deeper sense of place & identity.
She studied photography in De La Salle University, Manila, attended continuing education at the International Center of Photography, NYC with a Fellowship Grant from the Asian Cultural Council and finished her Masters awarded by Instituto Europeo di Design in Madrid. She has received numerous awards and is a recipient of the Cultural Center of the Philippines 13 Artists Awards, Ateneo Art Awards, and finalist at Lumi Helsinki & Sovereign Asian Art Prize.
Her works are surveyed in books “Photography Today” (Phaidon) and “Contemporary Photography in Asia” (Prestel). She has published 2 books of her own and also works as an educator on photography. In 2015, she founded Thousandfold, a platform for photobooks and contemporary photography in Manila. The artist is represented by Silverlens Galleries .
