Valeriia Mirhorodchenko (UA) is a visual artist from Mykolaiv. In her work, she focuses on the physicality and reflection of inner experiences and their multifaceted nature. She combines different types of media, from media formats to decorative arts. Valeria studied at the “Mykolaiv college of culture and art” at the faculty of arts and crafts (2014-2018). In 2020 she decided to try another field of art – photography – at the MYPH school of the Ukrainian concept photographer S. Melnichenko.
