Josefina Anjou (Sweden, 1993) is an artist who intends to spawn images from an inner place out of this world, to undo dualism and binary divisions of subject/object, nature/nurture, science/fiction by pointing at the things that are both. She considers herself a co-creator, one of many agents in a series of spooky actions manifesting her work. Her main medium is oil painting which more often than not exceeds the two–dimensional frame by the use of sculptural elements. She graduated from The Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2019. She is currently a resident at Laurel Project Space in Amsterdam Oost.

Over the past year Josefina Anjou and Niklas Büscher have been working on LATE BLOOMER, a graphic novel imagined, drawn and written in collaboration. A tale of symbiosis, the narrative is a hybrid of teen-drama and ecological science fiction. The central character ‘B’ unifies the artists’ own memories of adolescence and a quirky take on antihumanism. The novel can be purchased by following the link below.
