Mirjam Hinn

Mirjam Hinn (born 1990) is an abstract artist who lives and works in Tartu, Estonia. She has graduated from University of Tartu, Department of Painting MA (2018), Tartu Higher Art School (2014) and Tartu Art School (2010). She has participated in numerous joint and international exhibitions since 2011, first in Estonia and then also in Finland, Lithuania, Belarus, Italy and Germany, including NordArt, ArteLaguna, CombatPrize etc.Some of the key themes in her practice have evolved from her fascination with the phenomenon of synaesthesia, the idea of blended senses. Hinn is interested in investigating how it is possible to visualize experiences on canvases, for example hearing sounds (exhibition Solidified Sounds), sensing light (exhibition The Light Begins to Boil) or experiencing emotional shock, for example exhibition High Voltage which focuses on issues of inward human experiences by exploring the intense states of mind and their role in being human. Her former exhibition “Island of a Thousand Eyes” offered an original glimpse of the post-technological society where ideas about nature and artificial structures have become intertwined. Most of her personal exhibitions have taken place in Estonia, where she ́s been awarded with the AkzoNobel Art Award 2018, Young Tartu 2019 and nominated for the Konrad Mägi Award 2020. Her works can be found in private collections and institutional collections.She is member of Estonian Artists’ Association and Estonian Painters’ Association.
