Aghim Muka

Fehlendes Portraitfoto

Born 1965


Muka is a versatile artistic figure and not easy to classify. His self-expression is not limited to painting alone. The media of his artistic research ranges from installations to video, sculpture and performance.
He breaks with the traditional norms. Never repetitive, each work expresses his poetic art with an explosive force, whatever the expressive means utilised, this being merely functional to Muka‘s need to narrate which he feels to be compelling, vital and categoric.

Being Albanian, he loves Albania and describes it with natural materials, cloth, silk, cotton, sand, wood and acrylic. His latest works see him making use of embroidery, sculpture, sewing, cooking, burning, drawing his inspiration from India, creating his work as though it was a great universal puzzle to be solved.


He studied Fine Art at the school of Art in Valona, Albania, where he taught afterwards for some years.
Since 1995 he lives and works in Milan, Italy.
