Yesterday ABC Radio National broadcasted a fantastic half hour interview with Melbourne’s own Miso.
Below is a written intro and link to the interview audio. Enjoy!
Stanislava Pinchuk, or Miso as she is better known, is a young street artist who has a mythical, fairytale quality. Her work sways between pasting hand-drawn portraits in city streets to intricate drawings and installations in gallery spaces. They often feature figures that have an early 20th century Eastern European look and feel to them — very delicate and touching images.
Miso was one of the artists in the street art exhibition called Space Invaders at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra earlier this year.
She shares a studio space with her partner and fellow artist Ghostpatrol, in an old Gothic building in the heart of Melbourne which is itself a strangely magical place.
And Miso’s new lino print Winter Evenings available at S&N…
‘on winter evenings, when the devil disguised as a snowstorm, somersaulted and howled under the iron gutters of the roofs’
mikhail bulgakov, from the short story ‘no. 13 the elpit rabcommun building’, 1922.
