Biography


Edyta Mąsior was born in Poland in 1977. Her early years were spent with Maria Sękala in Chrzanów. 

 

She is an artist and academic teacher, currently working at the Faculty of Intermedia at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland.

 

As an artist she has developed her artistic practice within different fields of traditional as well as new media visual arts. While her early training consisted of traditional techniques in visual arts, this experience would eventually lead her towards an interest in new media arts, which has since developed into a creative practice in time-based media works. Her work in visual and sonic media arts draws attention to communication and perception processes as well as explores the intersection between art and technology by way of interactivity, predominantly in the form installation environments. Her research addresses the media translocations in the definition of modern art transformations.

 

Her academic background includes completed studies in her native country as well as abroad. She concluded her PhD in Intermedia at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. She obtained her MA in Digital Arts (Postgraduate Programme Studies) from the Athens School of Fine Arts. She also attended Modern Greek Language courses at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. She holds a Master of Arts from the Faculty of Arts at the Pedagogical University of Cracow, whilst being the first student of the Faculty to receive the Erasmus/Socrates scholarship to study at the University of Crete.


She has received fellowships from the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, the State Scholarship Foundation (IKY Greece), Erasmus/Socrates program, and Polish academic scholarships.

 

Her works have been presented in solo and group exhibitions as well as in festivals both in her native country and abroad.
