Vlada Trocka was born in Poland, she studied film and fashion design in Krakow, following a desire to do something with her hands. She is interested in telling her story as well as exploring other people’s. She questions human behaviour by looking into their narrative, seeking empathy from the viewer. Vlada draws upon dark personal experiences, which for her are a form of catharses creating works that romanticise sadness. She transposes her beliefs into her creations. Throughout her works she fights against categorisation or conformity.
