Meri Andric

About Meri was always an artistic soul, engaged in painting and craft-work from an early age. Born in Bosnia, Meri and her family survived the horror of a long and corrupt war, migrating to Australia in 1997 and settling in Sydney. Over the years, Meri prolifically created an array of pieces, experimenting with techniques and styles. Her work is always fresh and deeply emotional. Dark shades and quick strokes dominate when her spirit is restless, only to be contrasted by bright hues of joie de vivre. Complimenting these emotions, when in a meditative state, the artist produces an otherworldly feeling of calm on the canvas, her creations imbued with idyllic depictions of tranquillity. Meri communicates her freedom by rejecting the confines of pre-determined styles, each artwork infused with a different vibe and message. This variety is her strength, being unpredictable and bold, purposely surprising her audience with every new creation. In 2014, Meri’s painting was auctioned at a fundraising event, attracting tremendous feedback and encouragement. Inspired to share her work with a wider audience, Meri’s first Australian group exhibition was in 2015, Art in the Hills. Since then, Meri was a finalist in the 'Blacktown City Art Prize' and in 'The Little Things' exhibition at Saint Cloche Gallery, a contemporary gallery and art space in Paddington. The artist is an active member of City of Parramatta Art Society CPAS, where she exhibits regularly since 2016.
