Boyana Aleksova is an award-winning Bulgarian artist based in Birmingham, UK. She graduated from her BA (Hons) Fine Art from the Birmingham School of Art, Birmingham City University in 2019.

Boyana's approach to making art is experiemental, accidental and full of curiosity towards things she does not yet understand, including technical processes, scientific knowledge and environmental philosophy. Through a playful approach to experimentation, pirntmaking, drawing, mapping, and research, she investigates the nature of metal and its relation to environmental pollution and eco-activism.

Her work has been shown in numerous shows internationally, including a solo show in 2016, with works acquired in private collections.
