Born in Chorzow, Poland, 1963


Karina Hurich completed her studies in the High School of Art in Katowice, 1978 and Academy of Art in Krakow, Poland in 1983. In 1988, she continued further to the Academy of Art in Dusseldorf, Germany. She had also been appointed "Meisterschuler" (Meister Student) by Prof.Lupertz suggested by Prof. Eggenschwiller. Later in her life, she became lecturer for Contemporian Arts at the Alanusacademy of Arts in Bonn,Germany.

Karina's portrayals of the human figure and small portraitures delve into the classical techniques of Chinese scroll paintings. Coupled with contemporary concerns and sensibilities, her human forms are portrayed in a manner reminiscent of imperial courtiers of the Ming Dynasty, though this time without any embellishment or regalia. As her figure beckons the notion of identity, of status and power, it is also a reminder of decorum and restraint.

Born in Poland and currently living in Germany, Karina Hubrich, first exhibited her works in Malaysia at the group exhibition "Oceans and Other Images" at Gallery Petronas, Kuala Lumpur in 1999. She has also exhibited throughout Europe, Egypt and China.
