About Aida Markiw
I am a scientist by profession, left my work to dedicate myself to art. I love to experiment, I love vast fields of color intertwining and mixing with each other. I like to try and capture what I see when I look at the world with eyes closed: through my eyelids, it changes when my head turns from sun to shade, it is fascinating. I am trying to capture the surges of colors and shapes that come from deep inside. I love to paint "happy" paintings, but I have some dark moments too and I paint those despite myself because they are part of me. Nature inspires me, and gets filtered through my emotions of the moment. Painting comes from a mysterious place inside.
PhD in Computer Science.
