I was born in Tirana, Albania in 1984. After graduating from artistic high school in Tirana I left
Albania to study fine arts in Italy. In 2008 I graduated with excellent results in painting techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. I then completed one year of Contemporary Art History at the University of Philosophy & Letters, followed by a year of photography school directed by the Museum Alinari in Florence.
I then relocated to Milan to work with the well-known fashion photographer
Giovanni Gastel. At the time I began also working as an assistant with italian artist Chiara Fumai and take part in the dOCUMENTA (13) project.
All my work tells stories, whether it’s on the outskirts of Tirana, ephemeral eyes
glued to a tree or the creation cosmogonies.
Currently I live and work in Tirana, I am also part of MIZA Gallery, coordinating and curating the exhibitions.
Miza is an artist-run-space in Tirana dedicated to the emerging art scene.
