Mimi Seery is a multimedia artist working in the mediums of paint, photography and mixed media. After receiving a BA in Fine Art in Sligo IT, Seery travelled extensively through Asia to experience the diversities and commonalties found between Western and Eastern cultures. Upon her return she studied graphic design at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE) where she focused on advertising and the principals of how the subject uses psychology for persuasion, this became a great influence on her current visual art practice. Mimi initiated an exciting new Instagram project entitled The Miniature Museum of Public Art. This project relates to the artists’ investigation of social isolation while also seeking alternative means for viewers to engage and interact with art online. www.mimiseery.com
