BORN IN MUNICH 1986, MILANA SCHOELLER LIVES AND WORKS IN STOCKHOLM. AFTER THE COMPLETION OF HER MSC IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ST. ANDREWS, SHE ATTENDED CLASSES AT ATELIER STOCKHOLM AND STARTED A MENTORSHIP PROGRAM WITH THE SWEDISH ARTIST PETER SKÖLD. MILANA’S WORK’S ARE IMBUED WITH AN UNDERLYING POLITICAL COMMENTARY IN RELATION TO SUSTAINABILITY, BE IT ABOUT SOCIAL PARADIGM SHIFTS, POLLUTION, CHANGING CLIMATES OR DENIAL. WITHIN THE CLEAR STRUCTURES OF HER PAINTINGS LIE THE DEEP INNER DIALOGUE OF THE ARTIST WITH THESE CONFLICTS.
MILANA’S FIRST EXHIBITION WAS A GROUP EXHIBITION IN MUNICH, GERMANY, IN 2012 AT ART ROOM 9. BOTH GROUP AS WELL AS SOLO EXHIBITIONS AT THE DE MARTINO GALLERY, MERCEDES BENZ AND HUBERT BURDA MEDIA, BURDA CREATIVE, FOLLOWED THIS. IN 2014 SHE HAD A INTERNATIONAL SOLO EXHIBITION AT THE XIAO HUI WANG ART MUSEUM IN CHINA AFTER WHICH SHE JOINED THE AGENCY/GALLERY BERNHEIMER CONTEMPORARY FOR A FEW YEARS AND HAD SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITIONS IN BERLIN, HANNOVER AND ISTANBUL. HER WORK WAS ALSO FEATURED AT THE ART FAIR “HIGHLIGHTS” IN MUNICH, AT THE BUNDESUMWELTAMT IN GERMANY AND, THROUGH THE ENTRE ART FOUNDATION, IN A GROUP EXHIBITION IN BASEL. SHE HAS SINCE EXHIBITED AT STEFAN VOGDT, GALERIE DER MODERNE AND SHOWED HER WORK IN AN INSTALLATION AT THE PINAKOTHEK DER MODERNE IN MUNICH GERMANY.
