Mila Moldenhawer is a visual artist born and based in Berkeley, CA. He creates art for all different objects, surfaces, and places. He currently maintains a daily studio practice in which he works on everything from the miniature to the massive, making stickers and murals as well as tables and tattoos. He loves to take on a wide array of projects and expand his artistic repertoire.
Mila’s work is often characterized by bold, brightly tinted-solid color schemes. Throughout the process of creation leads him to flow between hard edges, and soft blends in order to formulate a perfect balance between rigidity and fluidity. Much of his work has a playful yet calculated quality. His portraits use fragmented shapes, uncanny figures and flamboyant colors to explore gender and its ambiguity in indirectly queer ways.
