dora mai studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Technology Vienna. She lives and works as a freelance artist in Vienna.
In her artistic work, she primarily deals with people. With relationships, proximity and distance, spatially and temporally. With her architectural background, the shift between space and area is
an immanent part of the painting's theme. She sees painting as an opportunity to bring past moments into the present, to capture and hold the moment physically and to develop it further with the
means of painting.
