“NEW! “Anthem”

“Anthem” by Mia Makila, 2020, archival ultrachrome print. Available.

Finally! I have been working on this piece on-and-off for over 4 months and now it’s all done. This is the story of self-empowerment and it includes a collaboration with my amazingly talented friend Candice Angelini. I used and manipulated a few of her coolest head pieces (Coiffe Shamanic Bird and Post Mortem II) and pieces from her creepy Zombie mask (see last picture for some of the original pieces I used in the collage).

NEW! “The Rebelle Collection”

Woohoo! Good news! Here it is – “The Rebelle Collection” with 4 new digital collage, which I made exclusively for the coolest galley/store ever: @lamaisonrebelle ! The original prints will be available on their website soon! You can see all pieces here. I have been working on this collection for the last 5 months and I feel like they have redefined me as an artist. It doesn’t happen often that you feel like you have reached a new artistic level but I do feel it now with my Rebelle Collection and it makes me both excited and happy! I hope you like my new pieces, feel free to give some feedback in the comments! Have a great weekend!

Happy Women’s Day!

What a week! As you all could see here on the site, the week started out with my big artist comeback and ended with the International Women’s Day! So much GIRL POWER! I made this video for all my sisters out there – but the message is for everyone!

We are women, ladies & girls.
We are not objects.
We are not trophies.
We are not here to please you.
We exist on our own terms.
We own our bodies.
We own our stories.
Happy Women’s Day!

The artworks of 2019

2019 was to me the year of pure creative joy. It was also the year of vivid colors, like hot pink, neon green and nuances of azure blue. It was the year where I made many feminist statements in my art – from my @ladyicona project of making surreal portraits of amazing female icons – to my “Ungagged” suite, which included imagery of personal victories in my trauma recovery and some brutal girl power!

I will continue to be loud, fierce and unapologetic in my art. I already have 8 pieces in progress which will cross over to the new year – and I have ideas for many, many more!

I wish to thank my fans and followers for your kindness, support and love that you have shown me this year. You give me such positive energy and I always put it into my art and hopefully it will return to you in the end. I am grateful for your appreciation of my inner Universe.

I also wish to thank Stan at PROIMAGES AB and Therése at Westréns Glas AB for their loyal support and service.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
