Sława Harasymowicz is an artist currently based on the East Kent coast. Her practice is largely narrative-driven and she works with drawing, moving image, different photographic and print techniques, writing and sound. Her projects are often site-responsive, sequential, and episodic.

Originally from Kraków, Poland, Harasymowicz is an alumna of the Royal College of Art London (MA Communication Art, 2006) and the Jagiellonian University Kraków with an MA in English Philology and Literature. She had solo exhibitions at The National Poetry Library Southbank Centre, London, The Freud Museum, London, The Ethnographic Museum of Kraków, BWA Gallery Tarnów, Poland and others. Important group shows include The Trouble with Value at Bunkier Gallery of Contemporary Art Kraków (2018). Her graphic novel adaptation of Sigmund Freud’s ‘Wolf Man’ (2012) was critically recognised as unconventional and the first of its kind. Sława is currently completing a practice-based PhD in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, University of the Arts London.

Awards include V&A Museum Illustration Awards and the Arts Foundation Fellowship. A recipient of the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage scholarships in the field of visual art, her practice has been supported by Arts Council England through Developing Your Creative Practice programme (2022). Her prints are held in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s permanent Prints and Drawings collection.
