Effi Mora was born in Russia in 1983 and has lived in Germany since 1997. She studied painting and sculpture at the HfBK Dresden.
Currently, she works mainly two-dimensional, although she likes to switch between techniques and formats. However, her favourite medium is aquarelle, because it can only be controlled to a limited extent. Aquarelle simply does what it wants, and the art is to combine the spontaneous and the planned elements.
The main themes in Effi Mora’s work are people and their interactions, but also scenic, dreamy, sometimes morbid landscapes that can be understood as inner shelters.
