Artist and designer, Natasha Tomchin, will be curating the backdrop of the runway with her Flora Aurora installation. Debuted at Art Basel 2019, Prismatic Paradise is Natasha’s latest sculptural series inspired by the shapes and shadows of local flora. Based on actual leaf patterns and fabricated from dichroic film, acrylic and metal, these surreal monstera and palm trees cast prismatic-colored shadows different from the light they reflect.

Natasha Tomchin is an artist, designer and coder.

Virtual Reality | Immersive Installations | Projection Mapping | Digital Art

Natasha Tomchin is driven by her fascination with natural phenomena. Born in Belarus and raised in Nebraska, she’s called Miami home for the last ten years. Inspired by the clouds and lush flora, her art draws directly from her surroundings in an effort to connect more deeply with nature. These feelings translate across code art, painted furniture, sculpture, video, and projection installations.
