ANJA DEMUTH

Anja Demuth is a German multidisciplinary artist focused on sculptural soft fashion and material experimentation. She is currently based in Munich and Ulm.

After an apprenticeship as a custom tailor for women, she began her studies at Pforzheim University - School of Design, where she graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor's degree with honors in fashion design. She then completed a Master's degree with distinction in textile and surface design at Wei├čensee Academy of Art Berlin in 2020.

For Anja Demuth it is important to go new, surprising and unconvential ways. She works experimentially, starting from a concept / topic and following the zero waste approach. Her art crosses borders, moves open minded and ignores boundaries between art, design and fashion. Over time, she has acquired interdisciplinary knowledge and skills. While working, the ideas arise, the concept develops, the goal forms. In this intuitive way she creates wearable art, installations, illustrations and also painting. Currently, she focuses on digital 3D art. With her work she has won several design and art awards.
