Asim Memishi (b. 1965, lives and works in Melbourne) is as Australian artist and proud member of the Albanian diaspora. He was Blood Mountain’s Artist-in-Residence in 2011. Memishi’s artistic practice is a synthesis between architecture, ornament and history. His examination of everyday sign systems is conducted within a formalist, geometric language he calls “the cartography of the everyday”. Memishi is the recipient of the preeminent Theodore Urbach Prize (1994) and the Studio Residency Award at 200 Gertrude Street in Melbourne (1996). As a practicing artist he rarely exhibits by choice, opting instead to support Australia’s promising arts community as a guerilla gallerist.
