ARTIST AT A GLANCE
Location: Vaughan, Ontario
Anya Mielniczek is a Toronto-based artist working in various forms of art creation and facilitation since graduating from Queen’s University in 2012.
Her interest and curiosity in materials as literal as garbage bits and love for all mediums including: graphite, paint, resin, watercolour, aerosol, and marker commonly make-up pieces in the artist's heavily media-mixed portfolio.
She’s pursued local and international residencies, exhibiting work in solo and group shows and exhibitions in Toronto and abroad. Seasonal shifts in style and design are a literal connection to the emotional environment, time and place Mielniczek responds too, collectively her art is a continuous flow of experiments reflecting current interests, and explorations connected to themes surrounding human nature and emotion primarily through portraiture. Her passion for the environment has also lead Mielniczek to explore the effects of human consumption through material collage and installations.
