About Ema
I do street art exhibitions … well not exactly that, but exhibitions with street artists.  Also I manage artists.  I’ve done my shows here and now I want to expand.  I run these out of the gallery behind me. I used to work next door, and this space that became available. I knew I wanted my own area and was encouraged to take this leap of faith. There was one small bulb, the walls were green, full of holes and the place filled with rubbish basically. So for three days I locked myself away and created my gallery.

I left Bulgaria when I was 16. I‘ve had a passion for art since I can remember. There isn’t the same platform for art and what I wanted to do there, and I knew I would leave at one point.

“I’m a biomed undergraduate, but I’ve decided now that uni isn’t for me. It’s been challenging emotionally and I can’t enjoy my subject in that environment. It’s taken away a lot of my passion for science and has affected my wellbeing. Recently I’ve started to re-engage with my creative side instead. I’m writing a science fiction graphic novel and doing so has given me focus and a way to enjoy science once again. It’s based in a post-apocalyptic Oxford and has major themes of evolution and what being human really means. On top of that it is all tied together in a morbidly humorous way.  It’s fun to turn my drunken adventures in Oxford into stories.”
