Marisa Swangha (pronounced “swan” like the bird, and “ga” like galaxy) is a Canadian-born visual artist. Having lived most of her life in Montreal, with some years in London (UK) and New York City (US), she is currently based in Ottawa.

A self-taught painter, her work is heavily informed by science, northern nature, and modern life. She interprets Canadian  histories and geographies through layers, patterns, textures, and geometric abstractions.

Marisa’s work has been exhibited, to name a few, at Propeller Art Gallery (Toronto), FiveMyles Gallery (New York City), Montreal’s City Hall, Kunstraum Kreuzberg Gallery (Berlin), the San Diego Museum of Art (US), and the University of Brighton Gallery (UK).
Corporate and private collectors of her artwork can be found in North America, the UK, Japan, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia.

She is a proud supporter of VISUAL AIDS which provides support to HIV+ artists and helps preserve their legacies.

Marisa Swangha's work will be featured in the “Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed” exhibit at the Orillia Museum of Art and History from October 3, 2020 to January 17, 2021.
