About

 

Born in Northern Ireland and living in London, Joni Belaruski can either be found making art or making music.

 

Using figurative form of both humans and animals to devilishly blend the disjunction between her own reality and fantasy to devastating effect, the artist fuses darkness with light to create signature striking original artworks like no other.

 

A former Fine Art student of the University of Ulster in Belfast, Belaruski first found her way to London as she transferred to London Metropolitan in 2010.

 

A touring drummer with punk folk favourites ‘The Great Malarkey’, Belaruski has extensively toured as a musician and exhibited as an artist as her following continues to grow in the UK and abroad.

 

‘I believe in beauty, faces as a window of expression and I draw with both dream and nightmare, splattered with the rawness and imperfection of what I see’
