FocusOn 1.72: @Katia_mi on Instagram


Instagram is a where great creative and talented people come together.

. wants to contribute to helping you to discover surprising and creative users from all walks of life. Their common denominator?They are people addicted to Instagram telling us about their lives, revealing their passions and sharing their best Instagram tips.


Today we feature Katia_MI!Statigram – Instagram webviewer


Born in Olomouts (Chech Republic) in a Russian family, Katia_mi currently lives in Moscow, Russia.

When she was young she was quite odd, she liked to place objects into nice geometric figures.

She used to create her own toys because she did not like the typical and standard ones.

She loved to make small live installations using her hands to create different things.

She followed this specific approach during her Arts and Design studies.

She likes to work with various materials using them in a non-standard way and to mix different techniques. 

One of the most interesting to her is the discoloration technique. She believes that once you make a picture monochromatic, they start telling stories. 

I work in the communicative and interior design field, creating fashion jewelry, women’s accessories.

Among other things, I adapt foreign brand’s to the Russian market, create visual concepts of brand shops and shop-in-shops, offer outstanding graphics solutions to different customers. As an example you can see my graphics in the famous Innovation Center “Skolkovo”
