VIDEO – MYMO – Light in the Darkness

MYMO und der Skate Fotograf und Filmemacher Cesar T aus Brasilien haben kürzlich für ein schönes Projekt zusammengearbeitet. „The collaboration sprung out of Cesar’s interest in his sister MYMO’s abstract style and her playful revival of afro-cosmic themes. Location: Berlin Kreuzberg. The film is titled LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS (Blacklight Sunportal) Berlin Nov 2013.“

MYMO is a Multi-disciplinary Artist , and currently lives and works Between Berlin (d) and Cape Town (SA).

She has been traveling throughout the world for the past years. These travels have a direct relationship with her artistic practice, whereby she created and curated exhibitions, workshops, and lectures. She is one of the most influential female urban artists of her generation. Known by her street name MYMO she has a large following in the street art and Art/Design community.
She likes to combine abstract forms with Pyramid shapes, Trianglar patterns and vivid colours.
These patterns trace back to her North African roots.


Her style can be described as a combination of Mystic, Cosmic, Tribal-funk and psychedelic.
With a multimedia attitude she doesn’t restrict herself to any particular medium. She constantly develops new possibilities of aesthetic expression (from street and canvas painting to collage, from animation to installations). From simply creating art for herself, her recognisable style brought her to work in many different fields in series of commercial successes such as: creating advertisements for popular products, designing products, working in films and being commissioned to paint and create art-work in well-known locations.

MYMO can be understood as a messenger between this realm and fantastic parallel universes. Her work is a reflection of contemporary society. She interacts and communicates within the urban context of the everyday, promoting positive change in our world.
Mymonsters stand for her creations. It is a creation process called MYMO.

Mankind call me „MYMO“ the Illusionist, the Gatekeeper to other Dimensions the whole World tries to grasp me.

My spirit has been around in many places, dark Cities and bright Nations throughout the World. I never know where my spirit will be next; do you know from where the next wind will blow?
I exist in mankind’s Legends and Fairy tales in the Streets and the Alleys, on the Walls and in your Eyes.

My Artwork and Illusions represent portals in time and space. Portals can be seen in symbols ,
in words, and in paintings. I play in my experimental Artwork with emotions and colors, physics and
absolute self – awareness. What I see through the portals are messages through Images and sometimes whole Stories, and that is what I am painting. Seeing becomes a miracle .
Life itself is infinite, a spirit, living thing, and to hear see and speak that, you have to have the Art of listening, the Art of seeing and the Art of Speaking , these are miracles. Mankind has lost the touch with these gifts. MYMO Sees, and is capable of translating messages between realms. I see things and then I draw them.

No thinking; thinking prevents seeing .

Thoughts are limited, my paintings are beyond thought and beyond knowledge , my Artwork is a living thing…
