Miranda Vukasović is a Croatian-born artist and designer. She has moved con-tinuously, settling briefly in Zagreb, Milano, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Mexico City, London, New York, and most recently Beijing, passing through thousands of des-tinations in between.
Miranda has been working in the field of architecture, design, and art for over ten years. She has extensive experience in project design and production, drawing from her collaborations with a wide range of design studios across Europe and the USA. Her passion for architecture has led her to work on a broad range of projects within the field, including serving as an exhibition designer and curator with Renzo Piano Building Workshop (www.rpbw.com).
Miranda holds a Master’s Degree in Design from the Polytechnic of Milano (2007) and a Master’s Degree in City Transformation and Urban Planning in Mexico City with Centro Metropolitano de Architectura Sostenible and Universidad Politecnica de Cataluña (2009). In 2013, she presented her first jewelry design showcase in collaboration with Micro Macro studio at the Beijing Design Week. This work was also shown in the exhibition “ARTchitecture – the Way we Design” at Today Art Museum, China. In 2016, she started her own fine jewelry and sun-glasses brand MV inspired by her passion for architecture. In addition to jewelry, Miranda designs a wide range of objects, always drawing inspiration from the cultural heritage of the destinations she visits and calls home.
She is also a part of Studio Constellation, which is a group of talented artisans, artists, and designers creating unique pieces and limited editions of furniture, objects, and lighting.
She is also the founder of The Radiance, an experimental music group that is currently working on its second album. In 2018, The Radiance was recognized internationally with The Akademia Music Award for Best Ambient / Instrumental Song for Flying Kites. The Radiance is currently working on an audiovisual installation that includes re-creating transcend spaces within vibrations of the sound in the space. The work is to be recorded and shot in a 600-year-old Buddhist temple in Beijing. The international team includes the Grammy award-winning producer Jeff Bova (Céline Dion), Ned Douglas (Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger), and the director/VFX artist Jeff Ranasinghe (Avengers, Ant-Man and the Wasp). The goal of their work is to capture the spirit of the temple, both acoustically and visually, and then to combine them in a new space.
The Radiance has recently performed at the CAFA Museum of Art, Beijing for the opening exhibition of Marc Quinn, the British contemporary visual artist.
