'Intuitive art speaks when words have no form or shape. For me, creating art is an expressive means to channel creative energy with positive emotions that reflect a higher vision within. I believe in the divine healing power of art. Art connects the viewer and the artist.
I would describe each piece I create as 'an emotional conversation through colour and shape. A tangible expression of one's soul.' - says Mira
Slovakia born, New Zealand's abstract artist, Mira Corbova is living and working in a sunny Tauranga, New Zealand.
Mira is a professional artist, gallery curator & mentor and an inspirational art tutor whose work mirrors a passion of self-expression, energy, colour and the connection in various forms. Naturally creative and intuitive person, she enjoys exploring the emotions and feelings she often picks up around her. These are the inspirations that became her creations. Using vibrant oil colours, various shapes flow onto her canvas intuitively.
Surrounded with art and design since her early age, Mira has attended a private art school since the age of six and at the age of eleven, she has won her first international award at the International Children's Art Show in Tokyo, Japan. After finishing her studies in art & photography, economics and management in Slovakia, she moved to the UK in her early twenties where she spent twelve years prior permanently immigrating to New Zealand in 2012. After few challenging years, settling down in a new country once again, she finally pursued her long term dream by opening her own gallery The Art Lounge NZ and becoming a full-time artist.
Mira says: 'Using oils and working mostly with a pallet knife allows me to achieve a colourful energy in my art that represents a personal freedom and a sense of tranquility. The outcome of my paintings is vibrant and emotive. Once you have connected on an emotional and/or spiritual level, you may even see the images unfolding in front of your eyes. I hope that my art awakens a creative mind and brings harmonious energy , healing, joy and a peacefulness into people's lives. My aim is to inspire and encourage everyone through creativity, to connect and to heal through a language that speaks to your soul. I am using arts to promote emotional health and well-being and to connect people through creativity. Creativity improves well-being and bring a joy in our lives. Engaging in the visual arts for adults can also reduce depression and anxiety, increase self-respect, self-worth and self-esteem as well as encourage and stimulate re-engagement with the wider, everyday social world.
I believe in the divine healing power of art, a very important and powerful tool for everyone. My life goal is to spread positive vibes, love, peace and healing through my art. It gives me a lot of joy when I receive words of encouragement and appreciation from my clients telling me how much happiness my art brought them.'
Each piece of her artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of the Authenticity, some with a positive message or a poem. Her paintings have been included in private collections in Slovakia, UK, USA, Mexico and New Zealand. She has exhibited in Slovakia, Japan, UK and in New Zealand.
