Joy Miessi was born in 1993 in London, where they currently live and work. Following a degree in BA (Hons) Illustration at Portsmouth University, Miessi went on to exhibit at Transmissions Gallery, Protein Studios and at 198 Gallery in London.
Miessi revisits memories, conversations and feelings, translating these into mixed media works ranging from cardboard to canvas. A range of processes are utilised to compose pieces that make reference to everyday life in the UK and their Congolese heritage.
Miessi's "The Gift of a Skort" exhibition was shown at Atom Gallery in September/October 2018.
