about the artist

Mia de Azevedo is a Birmingham based visual artist whose practice retains an experimental, varied and diverse approach. Creatively, Mia relies on memory and the imagination, often using surrealist techniques for both inspiration and rendering, while routinely employing methods of stylization and abstraction in order to develop and hone a distinctive style. In recent years, as a reaction to the all pervasiveness of digitization, inspired by the simplicity and immediacy of pencil drawing, by the tactile sensitivity of graphite against paper surface, Mia's practice has returned to exploring the elemental and candid possibilities of this immensely versatile medium.
