Donny Nie is a Toronto-based interdisciplinary artist. She received a BFA from OCAD University, and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

From large-scale oil painting, monotype, digital projection, to small-scale ceramic and glass form, her interdisciplinary abstractions coalesce to manifest an intuitive, gestalt experience. Nie’s mediums examine proximity as a visual and metaphorical instrument to simplify or complicate information over different courses of materialities, and eventually inform each other in the same exhibition space.
