My art poses a duality between science and spirituality. Through experimentation, I creatively expose the perfect proportion of nature. As well as in different projects, I expose and experiment as much
with microscopic photography with paintings. Projects that are based in such a scientific investigation as artistic and visual on the proportion, architecture, beauty and nature program. When creating, my main inspiration is the divine nature, and the inner world of it
NASARIMBA, meaning “playful mischief,” is the practice of Canadian artists Rachel Ziriada (BFA UVic 2014) and Mikhail Miller (BFA AUArts 2006). The duo investigate aspects of everyday life filtered through lenses of abstraction. Their collaboration implements visual references of both natural and manufactured subjects gathered from their surrounding environments. Interests in early twentieth century dada and modernist movements combine with aesthetics of collage, digital design, printmaking and graffiti to create a shared perspective. NASARIMBA’s work in screen printing, assemblage sculpture and acrylic painting informs their production of large-scale public murals.
NASARIMBA has exhibited with Galería Anomalía in Mexico City, VIVIANEART in Calgary, AB Canada, and Art By Friends in Annecy, France. They have participated in residencies at Mossy Trails (Athabasca, AB), The OU Residency (Duncan, BC), and The Wreck City Residency (Calgary, AB). Their murals are seen across Canada and Mexico and have been featured in Canadian festivals including BUMP, Wall-to-Wall and Meet the Streets. Mikhail and Rachel live and work together in Mohkinstsis, Treaty 7 Territory (Calgary, Alberta).
