Alketa Ramaj


Alketa Ramaj graduated in 2006 from the Academy of Arts in Tirana. Her work is represented by an incessant curiosity and permanent study of new forms of expression, which reveals a striking independence in terms of applying her own critical and personal working methods. The emotional relationship the artist builds with the environment she lives in, in terms of social connection, historical and the political context, are reflected in her practice that develops in different mediums.
