Myka Baum is a visual artist living and working in London.
After a decade in the office Myka turned to study for a BA in Fashion where she discovered art and became a keen photographer. She went on to study on the PG Cert in Photography at Central Saint Martins (2008-2009) which resulted in her Lunar Mare series being selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 09. She has exhibited at Café Park Gallery, Brighton Photo Fringe, Photofusion, Cornerhouse, and APT gallery and is about to start her second year of MA study at the Royal College of Art on the Print pathway.
Myka's practice is centred around re-connecting with an increasingly ignored nature. She is interested in how modern urban society has become so disconnected from nature, herself included. Myka's practice involves close observations of nature and attempts to involve nature directly in expressing itself through her work. She works with photography, experimental printing processes, natural phenomena and installation.
" I didn't want to tell the tree or weed what it was. I wanted it to tell me something and through me express its meaning in nature".
