Mirka Mora

Mirka Mora (b. 1928) is a prominent French-born Australian visual artist who has contributed significantly to the development of contemporary art in Australia. Born in France, Mirka and her family survived the holocaust and later fled to Melbourne where their contribution to the cultural life of Australia continues to be felt. Mirka's paintings, drawings and mosaics are instantly recognisable: bright, impressionistic and embued with symbols and fantasy-like themes.
