Mirka Mora

Someone wrote to me on instagram today @misterclaudey (that's me) if I had heard of the French/Austrailian artist Mirka Mora.  I hadn't, but I looked her up, and wanted to share my new discovery with you.  She narrowly escaped being deported to Auschwitz during ww2 and emigrated to Australia with her husband after the war where she and her husband quickly became key figures on the Melbourne cultural scene.... you can read more about her here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirka_Mora
I'm always happy to learn about artists I had never heard of :)
