BIOGRAPHY

Belarusian artist Cemra, born in 1990, uses bandages as canvases to explore human trauma and resilience. She started painting at 15, attended art classes, and entered art college at 17. Initially a designer, she began painting in 2005, influenced by societal and environmental concerns, and adopted veganism and minimalism. Known for examining the darker sides of human nature, Cemra gained acclaim with exhibitions in Belarus, including solo shows and significant collaborations. Her art, which blends painting with installation and sculpture, tackles social and political issues, aiming to inspire change and justice.

ARTIST STATEMENT

TRANSMUTING DARKNESS INTO TRIUMPH THROUGH ART

My works, where bandages serve as canvas, embody stories of resilience.

"Cemra" means darkness in Belarusian, a theme I delve into, transforming pain into beauty with oil and resin.

My art doesn't just exist; it breathes, it tells stories, it awakens.

My projects are aimed at the development and preservation of

cultural heritage, the expansion and nurturing of ethics, trust, empathy, and humanity.
