Margarita Reimann, alias Miki, was born on 25th May 1987 in Chelyabinsk, Russia. With unusual talent for her young age, she is accepted to the Academy of Arts at the age of three. Encouraged by her parents and supported by the Association for Gifted Children, she is able to enjoy an extended artistic education and produces early works with a preference for pastel and aquarelle. The family’s relocation to Germany causes a break in the artist’s development, which continues three years later with her education at a private art university in Dusseldorf. After graduation, she starts working as a Graphic Artist in the fields of Graphic Design, Visual Art and Commercial Art in Germany and Switzerland. After graduation from the University of Zurich with a degree in Literature and Linguistics in English, German and Russian, she takes up painting.

Influenced by her childhood in Russia, upbringing in Germany, and life in Switzerland and the U.S., Miki likes to challenge clichés and play with stereotypes. She combines a love for fashion, beauty and elegance with an inquisitive mind and questions common morals and values imposed on women in different societies.

The artist paints in oil on linen, wood and paper. She further uses supplementary media, like glass, pearl and jewellery applications. The artist currently lives and works in London.
