Éva Mayer

Éva Mayer (1983) was born in Bratislava, she currently lives and works in Šamorín and in Budapest. She graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2008 with major in prints and from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2015. She has been doing her DLA course since 2012. In 2013 she received the Munkácsy Prize as an acknowledgement of her work. She was in Cork, Ireland with a scholarship in 2007. Her works have been widely exhibited internationally for example in the USA, Berlin, Vienna, Venice and Budapest. She was also selected in the International Print Triennial in Krakow. She is also an active organiser and curator in the field of contemporary art being the founder of an art colony in Slovakia. In the autumn of 2015 her recent works were on view in the The Museum of Hungarian Culture in Bratislava.

Her works can be found in collections internationally for instance in Berlin, Samorin or in North-Carolina. Her subtle, black and white works are characterized by a special technique resembling the making of photograms. Her works show surreal scenes with many symbols, out of which the mostly used one is the traffic sign. She often designs her exhibitions of photos, photograms, digital interactive installations into religious space. Her latest works are colourful, but similarly to the previous ones, all are made with a unique technique. These works are on the verge of painting and printing and are also installed in lightboxes. All her works carry high level of spiritualism integrating religious elements as well.
