Mia Maljojoki's artwork employs unconventional materials to produce wearable objects that refer to personal and world events. She exhibits these works of art through multimedia and performance installations that explore how objects in context can transmit a range of meanings and emotions. Maljojoki currently lives and works in Munich; she was born and raised Joensuu, Finland. She holds a BFA in small metals from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She continued her studies at the Akademie der Bildenden Künst München under Otto Künzli, and in 2010 was awarded a Diplom degree as a Meisterschulerin, the highest possible academic honor. In 2010 at Schmuck in Munich, she was awarded the Herbert Hofmann Award, a prestigious contemporary jewelry award.
