Anya Mielniczek is a Toronto based mixed-media artist whose work explores combinations of both fine art and street dirt mediums in portraiture, collage, installation and MURAL work.
Inspired by such things as garbage bits, found images and human consumption Mielniczek’s practice is emotionally charged, experimental and responsive to the time and place she’s creating in. The artist’s work is made of an assortment of layers, textures and grit energy that plays between a real and fantastical aesthetic.
A Queen’s University BFAH 2012 alum, Mielniczek completed a year long fellowship with The Living Arts Centre, Mississauga in 2014 and most recently was an artist in residence at INSTINC Studios, Singapore in 2016. The artist welcomed her first international solo show “Dwoistosc/Duality” in Krakow, Poland summer 2016.
