About 

Freya Tewelde is an interdisciplinary artist born in Asmara, Eritrea, raised in Saudi Arabia, and currently living and working in London, UK. A Chelsea College of Arts graduate with an MA in Fine Arts in 2018, Freya is also an Associate Lecturer at UAL.

 

Freya's work delves into lost heritages and rituals, examining human relationships and spatial navigation by integrating cultural, spiritual, and socio-economic systems with everyday ideological viewpoints. Her research is primarily influenced by psychology and neuroscience, focusing on the interconnectedness of mind, body, and culture in shaping mental health outcomes.

 

Freya's practice spans video performance, painting, sound, and mixed media. She often incorporates archival photographs and language to enrich her narrative. Through her art, she creates a dialogue that bridges the past and present, inviting viewers to explore the intricate layers of identity and experience.
