Gala Knörr was born and raised in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain). She graduated from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Fine Arts in Paris. Throughout the almost five years that she was based there, Knörr became very influenced by the bohemian strata of the city and its subcultural inter-relations. Knörr is now based in London, where she recently obtained her MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. Her work has been exhibited predominantly in Europe and the United States of America, where she also works as an independent curator and performer.
