  • A4 or A3 white paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Photographic materials to collage with, think magazines, nature books, thrifted cookbooks etc.

Minna Gilligan is a Melbourne-based artist who works primarily with painting, drawing and collage. Her works are eerie playgrounds of colour, usually inhabited by lone protagonists trapped in states of longing, sadness or exhalation. Minna exhibits nationally and internationally; and from 2011 – 2018 illustrated for ROOKIE, American actor Tavi Gevinson’s online magazine.
