Mirela Jade Malimban is a Vancouver based printmaker who has graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with a BFA (Visual Arts, Print Media).
Primarily working through the distances of intimacy presented in artist books and installation, she explores the relationships between varying forms and their interventions. Whether that form is architecture or the body, she investigates the need for structure and how we respond when it dissolves. Exploring the frailty of nature and the tangibility of that information through the possibilities of paper, she considers the complexities of structure and how it can be a vessel for both concepts of stability and fragility. The works become a space to grasp information that seems inevitable, but not dwelled on - a study of details kept silent.
As proud child of immigrants - she is forever thankful for the support and opportunities that have been presented.
