Minia D

Minia D. (b.1977 in Saigon, Vietnam, and raised in France) is a self-taught intuitive artist who primarily works with acrylic paintings on canvas and photography. Most of her past collections were produced in San Francisco, Paris and while traveling India. She has been based in Miami Beach since 2020. 


Her art and her practice of Chi Nei Tsang, a holistic approach to the healing touch, developed by the White Cloud Taoist Monks in ancient China, are intricately intertwined. " I try to paint the transformative energies and alchemy that occurs through physical-emotional healing, as we grow in consciousness. My work often refers to the Five Elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood), mysticism, love, hope, and the freedom of peeling off constrictive layers of our human conditioning to discover new ways of breathing into life."


Minia's intuitive process involves multiple layers of paint, allowing her inner guidance, or “the otherness”, to dictate colors choices, brush stroke rhythms, and overall composition, until a feeling of internal balance and harmony has reached. These layers build upon each other, are similar to the cumulative, energetically charged experiences and constant shifting states of mind. Her attempt to paint energies in motion translates the vibrancy of life's impermanence, often leaving the viewer in a meditative garden of new perceptions.


"Besides painting and photography, I grow organic foods, travel, and learn foreign languages whenever possible. Feeling Mother Nature's beauty, is essential for inspiration. Whether it is through painting or any other activities in life, I like the idea of always conspiring with the universe, and creativity is the doorway to it."
