Wawi Navarroza is a Filipino contemporary artist known for her works in photography, actively exhibiting in galleries and museums both in the Philippines and internationally. Her images explore self and surrounding as seen in her works in contemporary landscape, constructed tableaux, and self-portraits. Informed by crises and natural disasters, her works transmute personal experience to the symbolic, probing locations, materials, and constant movement, then synthesizing these all in the artist’s studio—all perhaps to mirror a path to understanding a deeper sense of place and identity. She studied photography in De La Salle University, Manila, attended continuing education at the International Center of Photography in New York City with a Fellowship Grant from the Asian Cultural Council, and finished her Masters awarded by Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid. She has received numerous awards and is a recipient of the CCP 13 Artists Award, Ateneo Art Awards, and finalist at Lumi Helsinki & Sovereign Asian Art Prize. Her works are surveyed in the books Photography Today (Phaidon) and Contemporary Photography in Asia (Prestel). She has also published her own books, DOMINION and Hunt & Gather, Terraria.
