Tania Lopez Winkler

Dr. Tania López Winkler is an educator, architect and exhibiting artist based in London. Her practice explores the alter-ego as means to enquire different aspects of modernity and the notion of ‘the normal’ through different media and creative outcomes. As she investigates ‘the normal’ her work uncovers the world of fantasy and the poetic imperfections embedded in the quotidian. She brings her wide range of art and design practice to contribute with a creative teaching to Interior Design. Students are encouraged to be curious, to follow intuitions, and to challenge habits of thought: nothing is too big or too small provided the right attitude and work ethic is brought to the table.
