START POINT PRIZE – Prize for emerging artists

Anja Münch

Anja Münch’s figurative drawings are based on a pure, linear line and distinctive graphic stylisation of subjects – or, more precisely, women – who are (together with animals) the protagonists of their grotesque short stories. In addition, the artist also creates short animated films and writes short texts. All these modes of expressions share a mild sense of humour and original poetry. (Marcel Fišer)
