Linds Miyo

Artist member since 2018
Pro
Toronto, Ontario

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 begins with broad representational panes of textured black underpainting in her work. These are black paintings, with layers upon layers of colour washed over top - folding the dark relief of the past into multi-dimensional present-day, with honesty, intimacy, and happiness.

Linds has been honoured to show her work internationally. Linds Miyo lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

Q+A

Describe the person your work appeals to in 3 words

Curious, strong, open-minded... I think my work attracts those looking for something fresh, truly unique and authentic. All of us should find our own voices, and I'm happy that my work is a reflection of my perspective, my point of view. Thank you for looking, and thank you for seeing.

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.
