Mia Darling is an artist who was born in Johannesburg and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. She is a 2018 graduate of the Michaelis School of Fine Art. Darling works with the unusual and playful medium of plasticine. Darling's plasticine works are colourful and painterly explorations into beauty, childhood and body image. She is most excited by the fantastical, the girly and the romantic, and fascinated by all things pink.
