Linds Miyo

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, ON

Self-taught artist Linds Miyo is a Canadian abstract painter. Born and raised in California, her work strives to evoke the strong, direct light of her childhood. A trauma survivor, Linds is interested in the balance between intention and that which is beyond our control, the meeting place between our best efforts and happenstance. She often uses broad representational panes of textured black in her work, washing layers of colour over top - folding the dark relief of the past into multi-dimensional present-day, with honesty, happiness and sparkle.

Linds Miyo lives and works in Toronto, Canada. She is currently in studio residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.

Inside the Studio


Q+A

Describe the person your work appeals to in 3 words

Curious, open-minded, authentic

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

We need light and color that expands our perceptions, which shakes us out of our predictable routines. I want to create the story of that beauty. I want to engage with the joy, to celebrate color, to revel in the power and energy it brings to even the smallest of our experiences.

When did you start making art, and why?

I've always made art. I still have my first painting on canvas, I made it at age 8. Art makes me happy.

Favourite artist(s) right now

Raymond Saunders is my forever fave. Genius.

Probably under a pile of kiddos or baking cookies. #momlife
