Maarit Murka

Sündinud / born 1981

Maarit Murka is one of the key representatives of the hyper-realistic style of Estonian comtemporary art. Keenly interested in social and historical circumstances, she depicts ordinary people and everyday situations, accentuating them with a social edge, emphasising all this in the technical games of her paintings by combining different contemporary materials. Her series “MindRoom” represents the synergy of the artist and the room, a mark of the massive (sub)conscious impact of the surrounding space on both the artist and their art. This is a story of the tension of thought in a seemingly empty world.
