Lija Silins (b.1987) is an artist and interior architect based in Stockholm, Sweden.
She explores the boundaries between art, architecture and craft. In a performative way she often includes herself by becoming a part of her artwork. Lija works spontaneous and intuitive and combines drawing and painting with textile.
In her work she touches issues such as shame and anxiety. Her main focus is to explore the interaction between space and movement.
