Amanda Lwin (b. 1982, London) is British-Burmese artist, whose work charts the interfaces between landscapes, cities, buildings and people. Preferring to think of her three-dimensional work as artefact (as opposed to sculpture), Lwin is captivated by hidden meanings and histories embedded in an anthropocenic terrain. Her engagement with psychogeographic concerns is informed by an eclectic array of literary, anthropological and mythological sources. Lwin grew up in Beckton, East London and graduated with a BA in Architecture at Cambridge followed by an MArch in Urban Design at UCL. She began her practice as a creative producer, realising ideas about geographic narratives through music festivals and computer games. Since moving towards a contemporary art output she has exhibited regularly with both commercial galleries and public programmes.
