Nika Fontaine, Berlin based, born in 1985 in Montreal Canada. Master of fine arts and autodidactic entrepreneur, she transitioned from male to female in 2014. This experience thought her much about the Ego as a construct and the polarizing energies shaping us. Through craftsmanship, I spiritualize matter and materialize the metaphysical in works that express concepts of mindfulness and emancipation. My art should be used as a vehicle to grow and transport oneself to new realms of understanding and sensorial acuteness. I like to consider my path as a parent of alchemical endeavors and witness of an initiatic way.
