List of products by artist Ada Magdalena Avetist

Ada is a multi facetted artist that has engaged in different direction within her artistc journey. She started very early with a traditional training in painting and graduated from a tailoring formation in Vienna. From there her art practice moved into few years of experimentation during her study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, where she had graduated with clearly elaborated sculptural installations. These took her into using the urban environment to develop site specific interventions. However, during her studies at Goldsmith University in London, Avetist turned her focus more toward the theory of art and developed JKNET, a project that is using the artistic strategies of appropriation to create her content. After another twist in her career, Avetist took a training in yoga and moved to Ibiza, her art changed again and found its way back to painting. Her most recent series, Meditations 2017, are a reflection of finding her authenticity and peace of mind within the practice of elevating her consciousness.
