Mirjam Siim was born in 1990 and raised in Tallinn, Estonia. She holds a degree from Tartu Art College, one of the best art universities in Estonia, and has spent a year abroad, as part of an exchange program, at the University of Porto, in Portugal.
She mostly works with animation and printmaking.. Mirjam currently resides in Porto working with illustration, (wall)painting, product design and jewelry. The artist’s richly patterned drawings and paintings are inspired by her urban life in Porto and her admiration of classical novelists such as Aldous Huxley and Lewis Carroll. Streets and bridges become repositories for her expressive narratives. The artist's growing body of illustrations is replete with symbols, places, and narratives that oftentimes concern people of Portugal. Meanwhile, her portraiture deals with a prismatic spectrum of human emotions and interactions while maintaining a signature stylistic integrity.
