Donny Nie is an emerging painter based in Toronto/Chicago. She is a current MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a 2019 BFA graduate from OCAD University, via a full-scholarship. Her paintings and sculptures underline the exhaustion and exuberance, of overwhelming possibilities in mundanity. The artworks reference sensations and processes of consuming food, to embody a continuous, and subtle shaping of an individual, through the accumulative effect of innocent routine. She paints to preserve memories of the ubiquitous and the personal, while celebrating a privacy embedded within the public images. Nie has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in US and Canada, at venues such as Bau-xi Gallery, Living Arts Centre, and Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
