Bianca Hlywa was born in Montreal, raised in Calgary and has returned to Montreal to study Painting and Drawing at Concordia. The common thread in her life has been the desire to create. In exploring this desire, she often uses unconventional materials such as cardboard and steel. Art is to culture, as nutrients are to humans. Montreal’s prominent artistic vibration is nutritious for the artist’s soul. Bianca absorbs these nutrients as inspiration for creating her art which helps add to the culturally rich society around her. Art is a way of life for her, and she will continue to feed the global community with her art until they’re full, or she’s six feet under.
