Lebenslauf:
Maarja Nurk is a visual artist who mainly deals with conceptual and process-based drawing and painting. Her main interest is prolonged processes, experimental printmaking techniques, repetitions, seriality and graphic structures. She is currently searching for ways to connect these approaches with more concrete contexts, periods and spaces.
Maarja is living and working in Tallinn, Estonia. She has graduated her MA studies in Estonian Academy of Arts. Her BA studies she completed at the University of Tartu and meanwhile studied at the University of Greifswald in Germany. Besides being a freelance artist, she has been in recent years working as a scenic painter in the theatre, previously also as a guest lecturer and art teacher.
