MELANIE RADA is a Venezuelan/Canadian/Czech artist with a degree in Theatre and Fine arts. She has worked in these fields for more than 10 years and currently is the artistic director of Akanda and the curator of A Maze in Art Space. She is also the head teacher at a small private school in Ricany where she is currently creating a curriculum for literature and the arts. These various life experiences have influenced Rada’s art in such a way that recall certain elements of expressionism while maintaining organic plant like qualities and is often multi panneled. Her latest work – Visible Sky – was seen on the A Maze in Tchajovna’s walls last September.
