Born in 1990, Malta and based between London and Malta
Gulja Holland is an emerging contemporary artist specializing in figurative painting. Her surrealist style inhabits the borders of drawing and painting and is influenced by an array of artists including Hieronymous Bosch, Francis Bacon and Helen Frankenthaler. Self-identity, environmental destruction and existentialism are recurring themes in her work.
Her most recent series explores apocalyptic narratives through a reversal of scale of animals and humans to convey the ever-increasing instability of hierarchical order brought about by the arrival of the Anthropocene.
