Maria Flawia Litwin began her art education in the dusty museums of Europe, followed by a BFA in Sculpture/Installation from OCAD and MFA from York University in Toronto. Her education continues as she applies research strategies in her art practice– where with skill and biting humour she dissects the art institution through an array of media from installation, correspondence, video, fiction writing, data collecting to alter egos. Her work has been written about in View on Canadian Art, the National Post, Eye Magazine, the Toronto Star and her interview with feminist activist Shailoh Philips can be found in Poor but Sexy Magazine. Flawia Litwin hopes her art playfully engages the audience in questions relevant to art and society at large.
