Wawi Navarroza is a multi-disciplinary artist from Manila, Philippines known for her works in photography. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from De La Salle University, Manila and attended continuing education at the International Center of Photography, New York. Navarroza completed her education with an award from the Istituto Europeo di Design, Madrid under the program European Master of Fine Art Photography.
Navarroza’s approach to photography is malleable, less as a documentarian but as an author of a visual language she creates and assembles. Her art is expressed through tableaus, portraiture, still life and installation, informed by research and by referential use of materials. She investigates displacement, disorientation, discovery and the idea of shifting locations as a response to her surroundings.
Navarroza has exhibited in Singapore Art Museum 8Q, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, the Asian Art Biennale at the National Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan.
