In 1985 Miriam Loellmann was born as the fourth of five siblings in Southern Germany, where she spent her very creative childhood and adolescence. Between 2007 and 2013 she was taught in various disciplines at three different art schools in Stuttgart, Berlin and Lisbon and was working partly as an assistant to the painter couple Heidi Foerster and Detlef Freudig in Stuttgart and Southern France. At the end of 2013, six month after her graduation, she took the conscious decision to move alone to Rio de Janeiro to build up her own studio, develop her individual way of working and follow her vocation to make art. Miriam Loellmann had with her a self-bound book about her final exam project, which served as a starting point to get a foothold in Rio, to align herself, and to find her very own direction. Shortly after her arrival she got a commission for a large mural in a beautiful big house overlooking Rio, which required her to find a studio. That was a 'first decisive step', as she calls it, and since then her studio, her archive, and her artistic career have grown from year to year.
In late 2021 Miriam Loellmann has transformed her living room into a private experimental exhibition space that invites and encourages international and local audiences to experience her body of work. The exhibition room can be visited by appointment with the artist.
For over ten years, Miriam Loellmann has dedicated herself to the making of art with enthusiasm, patience, sensitivity, and an alert internal awareness. She is mostly attracted to continually combining different materials in order to create tangible contrasts and sounds. Providing access to sensory perception is a main focus of her work.
