As a tattooist and street artist, working under the name MISO, Stanislava Pinchuk’s artwork spans the globe, on people and in cities everywhere.
After so many years traveling, Stanislava has resettled in her Melbourne studio and in a process of dreaming and mapping, Stanislava has begun retracing her life through delicate pinprick maps on white paper detailing the cities she has called home.
Hidden within each map are her memories, routines and experiences, as well as pathways leading to her friends houses across the world. Recently The National Gallery of Australia acquired two of her pinprick works, making Stanislava one of the youngest artists in the Australian national collection.
Bright Night Sky will be an exhibition of fourteen pinprick maps on paper and large installations by Stanislava on display at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.
