Mirela Kulović is a painter and artist based in the US. Since 2016, her drawings and paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions, and are held in several international collections. She holds a master's degree in industrial engineering and she is a self-thought, independent artist. 


Her exhibitions have received support from Somerville Art Council, Brookline Arts Center, Cambridge Art Association, Brookline Public Library, City of Zagreb, the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture in Boston, among others. She was a finalist for Walter Feldman Fellowship for emerging visual artists in New England.


Mirela's artwork is published in Studio Visit Magazine, by Steven Zevitas, a publisher of New American Paintings (US); Antenae, the journal of nature in visual culture; a peer-reviewed, non-funded, independent, academic journal (UK); and Boston Art Review (US). 


She participated in many panels with artists, scientists, scholars, educators and policymakers on various topics related to art, culture, sustainability, local resistance, resiliency, displacement, migrants' experience etc. The presentations: The Role of Art in Peace-building, Building Resiliency With Art and Culture In Distressed and Displaced Communities, Visual Knowledge, are one of the most often she delivers at art conferences and as guest lecturer at international universities. 


For the last few years, she has co-founded, contributed and supported many independent art initiatives and cultural grassroots projects in the US and Europe. In 2017, she founded ACG, an artist-run space and summer artists' residence in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The mission of the initiative is mutual exchange of knowledge between the local community and international artists. 


One of the most recent projects is her collaboration on the short fiction film Memories, where she had the role of artistic director. The official release of the film was in February, 2023 in Canada at the Toronto Black Film Festival. The film is influenced by various artists' voices from the Balkans, West Africa, US and Europe. By joining forces, this group of global artists are showing a universal narrative about migration while celebrating ordinary people.


At the moment, Mirela is splitting her time between Boston and New York, co-creating international artistic projects.
