About Me

Jana Lohde was born in 1994 and raised in Lithuania by a German father and a Russian mother.
Her parents mainly influenced her worldview, giving her a deep understanding of different languages and cultures, along with the possibility to travel and express freely her artistic inclination.
Since the age of four, she revealed a precocious talent for drawing and painting. She went to the Adomas Brakas Art School (Lithuania) at the age of nine, where she studied for five years. She then started to use photography as a medium to convey her artistic world.
When she was sixteen, she moved to US and spent one year studying arts (clay sculpture, design, painting, design technology, fashion design). Deeply influenced by this experience, she matured her own photographic style, showing in her works themes related to her complex identity.
In 2012, she moved to London on her own and started studying photography at University of Westminster, where she is currently completing her studies.

In her works we come across the universal themes of life and death, which are recurring motifs, often enhanced by the use of symbolic visual elements.
She creates parallel realities, expressing her refusal of the humanly possible, escaping into impossible worlds.
