Svenja Michelle Behle (*1996, Berlin)

Svenja Michelle Behle is a Dublin and Berlin based print and mixed media artist. Her practice builds around the abstraction of reality through patterns and distortion of imagery from her memory and photography. She explores themes around place, memory and temporality and boils down experiences and moments into fantastical abstract landscapes that re-evoke a feeling rather than resemble a specific place. Capturing the ephemeral beauty, the ghosts of memories, like fever dreams of our transient time in space.

An extended stay in South East Asia of over three years and a background in painting have had a major influence on her work. She has participated in exhibitions by Dublin, Berlin and London based galleries and graduated from the National College of Art > Design, Dublin in 2023, winning Graduate Awards from the Black Church Print Studio and DamnFine Print Studio.
