I love to produce bright and playful work that makes you look twice.What can you see? I use my collection of small animal models as my starting inspiration. I try to evoke an emotion with each of these works with a thread of love, compassion and fierceness. Enjoy the ride
Mica Still grew up in a small coastal town in the Pacific Northwest of United State, the home of *The Goonies*, where the art scene was dominated by seaside watercolors. She found herself immigrating to New Zealand for love in the late 90's after graduating from art school.
Since landing on NZ shores she hit the ground running. She has represented herself throughout her career, showing in over 100 exhibitions. She has been an art mentor, curated shows, a fundraiser and has caught the eye of many NZ and Australian collectors. In the last
decade she has moved her practice to the streets gaining recognition quickly for her bold animals that dominate the urban landscape who serve as guardians. Mica has been interviewed for many publications from Netherlands, New York to Japan and features in two documentaries about NZ street artists. Mica’s work, with its radiant colour and optical punch, howling tigers, wolves, guardians and naughty bits – is alive with daring, yet refreshingly sensitive. The jolt of her work contrasts with Mica’s trademark gentle demeanour – yet this artist’s vivid, deep-sea calm gives her fearless and provocative work its rich luminescence.
