Misha Milovanovich (aka Misha World) is a Belgrade-born artist living and working in London. Misha graduated from St Martins School of Art in London in the early nineties. She is known for her unruly minimalism. Moving between painting, live art, and sculpture, she does not have a single style or medium.
Marked by an exuberance of colours and patterns, her work is often darkly humorous as it deals with our insincerely extroverted, post-crash human condition. While her prima facie subject matter derives from popular and youth culture, her artistic progenitors include her mentor Martin Kippenberger, Roy Lichteinstein and Phillip Guston, as well as contemporary artists such as Gilbert and George, Keith Tyson, Rob Pruitt and Jim Lambie.
With a surreal approach to contemporary image making, Misha fuses her painterly background with a unique and boldly graphic sensibility. She is currently exploring the fusion of art and performance in the creation of un-commodifiable experiences.
These artworks are intended to exist only in the memories and emotions of their audience.
Misha adores shiny, colourful things but knows of the Corruption they inevitably bring..
