Mira Makai (b.1990, Budapest, Hungary) is an artist based in Budapest. Makai works across ceramic, acrylic painting, and oil pastel drawings. Moving away from the world of organic abstraction that previously characterized her works, she found a new home in a world of hybrid-like, magnified comic book miniatures intertwining of mythological and Pop culture influences.
Her works have been presented in several group exhibitions in museums and non-profit exhibition spaces like Hungarian National Museum, Küntslerhaus KM Graz, Collegium Hungaricum Berlin, Modern and Contemporary Arts Centre (MODEM) Debrecen. She also exhibited her creatures with art galleries in different cities of the European countries and art fairs, Art+Text Budapest, Susan Boutwell Gallery Münich, and Galerie Droste in Berlin, Viennacontemporary in Vienna. Her works can be seen in Esterhazy Private Collection and the Janus Pannonius Museum’s ceramic collection. An Esterhazy Art Award winner.
