Donny Nie

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Fiber and Material Studies

Donny Nie (b. 1997) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago and Toronto. Nie received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), and a BFA from OCAD University. She has exhibited in Canada, the United States, and China. Her works are collected by corporations such as Macdonald’s Canada, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and Greenland Minerals. From large-scale oil painting, monotype, digital projection, to small-scale ceramic and glass form, Nie’s interdisciplinary abstractions coalesce to manifest an intuitive, gestalt experience. Her mediums examine proximity as a visual and metaphorical instrument to simplify or complicate information over different courses of materialities, and eventually inform each other in the same exhibition space.
