Stanislava Pinchuk, also known as Miso, was born in the Ukraine and is an artist that has worked with installations, photography, fashion, publishing, tattooing and now pin-hole artwork. Though she is sometimes based in Melbourne, Miso is constantly travelling all over the world, and describes herself as a nomadic artist. While her art practice began in the form of stencilling and street art, Miso has spent the last few years making data maps of changing topographies in war zones and nuclear exclusion zones. She then creates large, delicate maps meticulously pin-pricked into paper.
Her most recent exhibition, Sarcophagus, featured data maps and radioactive topography inspired by her research of Reactor 4 in the Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone.
