Linea Matei works with conceptual and illustrative art, textile print design and workshops. Through her work she explores relations, behaviours and cultural norms. Linea recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Textile Art and Design from Konstfack University of Art, Craft and Design in Stockholm and has a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design from West London College. She was born and raised in Södertälje, a town near Sweden’s capital city Stockholm. Her interest in human expression started at an early age. By growing up in Södertälje with her father’s Romanian culture and her mother’s Kiruna (north Sweden) culture, she has experienced several ways of being, which has enriched her life and contributed to her quest to explore how relationships, cultural norms and power structures affect people and society.
