Noemi Conan Poland, b. 1987

Noemi Conan (b.1987) is based in London and received her BA in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art in 2021. 

 

Born in post-communist Poland, Conan’s works are an ode to the roadside women of the early 90’s she witnessed growing up. The women on the roads, depicting either sex workers or women there for leisure, are painted often unfazed by their surroundings and with colourful, confident attire. Conan’s practice explores the subject of the “Wild Woman” and feral femininity.
