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 in art fairs and galleries such as Art+Text Budapest, Susan Boutwell Gallery Münich, Galerie Droste in Berlin and Viennacontemporary in Vienna among others. Her works can be seen in Esterhazy Private Collection and the Janus Pannonius Museum’s ceramic collection. She is an Esterhazy Art Award winner.
