Mia Krys is a visual artist currently based in Portland, Oregon. Her work is centered around form, narrative and surfacing contrast between worlds. Krys began working with large format film in 2017 as a means of forcing herself to slow down and remain present, and pairs traditional darkroom techniques with an experimental approach to portray thought provoking narratives.
Though much of Krys’ most recent work deals with more politically ‘divisive' topics such as identity and sexuality, she believes that acknowledgement of both our differences and shared universal experiences as human beings are equally as important. Often portraying images of herself and women in abstract terms on analog film, Krys’ work is often characterized by softness and sensuality paired with a signature level of grit.
Though Krys’ mediums are film-centric, she identifies as a visual storyteller.
