Adriana Jaros, I am Adriana Jaroslavsky, a London-based artist with a rich tapestry of cultural influences. As a third-generation Venezuelan with Romanian-Jewish roots and a Brazilian father, I embody a harmonious blend of diverse inspirations.
My artistic focus revolves around the exploration of identity, migration, and feminism. Rooted in my immigrant experience, I integrate my heritage into my work to articulate the depths of my internal world.
Driven by a fascination with science's revelations on memory and its connection to our awareness of experiences, I go beyond physical spaces to map emotions. This exploration aligns seamlessly with my personal interests in migration, sustainability, bio-materiality, and up-cycling, all intricately intertwined with the concept of self-defined 'identity.'

In 2022, I joined Sharon Young's leading a textile collage workshop with She Speaks Up, empowering female voices. The same year, I was included in a women's group exhibition funded by the Waltham Forest Council, highlighting work against female marginalisation. This year, I received a Heritage Mural Commission opposite the William Morris Gallery and led a Wild Pigment Foraging Workshop.
Residencies include; PADA - Portugal (2024), Xenia - UK (2023), Joya: AiR Ecologic - Spain (2023) and Anchor Studio - Porthmeor, Cornwall (2021) which enriched my practice.
In the creation of the submitted works, I meticulously employed natural pigments and dyes, gathered throughout the year, applying them onto recycled fabrics. The stitching process serves as a symbolic act of 'gluing,' seamlessly amalgamating diverse moments and geographies onto postcards, creating a tangible connection between them.
