Moscow-born, Toronto-based Nika Belianina has been making fiction and documentary films for the last 10 years. Her work has been screened at Oscar-qualifying, human rights and other international film festivals in Canada, Nigeria, Russia, USA and Ukraine and gained her 6 awards. Nika’s photographs have been showcased in Belgium, Canada and USA at more than 20 exhibitions. She’s also a recipient of OAC grants and artist residencies in USA.
Belianina's works are odd and quirky, varying in theme and genre, yet the main style remains the same - magical realism. Her photographs reflect her view of life and its mysteries as well. Through her work she hopes to convey the hidden magic of our surroundings and to evoke the thirst to dream and question.
