Éva Mayer was born in 1983 in Somorja (SK) and is a talented graphic artist of the youngest generation. She is active both in Slovakia and in Hungary, based in Somorja and Budapest.
She graduated in 2009 at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest and has already had numerous group and solo exhibitions.
Despite her young age she has been rewarded by several art prizes and scholarships.
Some of these important acknowledgements are: the jury-prize of the "MEGA-PIXEL 2010", the prize of the Kondor Béla Foundation (2008), the Erasmus scholarship to Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork, Ireland (2007-2008), the first prize in the graphic section of the Hungarian Conference of Art Students.(2007) and the main prize of the Barcsay Jenő Foundation in 2006.

Éva Mayer is extending the borders of graphic genre in her art. She worked out her own specific and unique mixed technique by applying and combining photogram, digital technology and the giclee print. Her art deals with the problematic of relations between individuals and society by reflecting on her own personal experiences as well. Eva Mayer considers it to be important to create connections by her art and invites the viewer for active participation. Her interactive installations, video and graphic works challenge the viewer to give feedback by dynamic and visual spatial compositions

Éva Mayer has worked on several topics bearing personal relations, such as illness, death, human sensitivity, and social vulnerability. She is mainly concerned with the self-identification of a person and his situation in the community. Being a Hungarian-Slovakian artist it is a challenge for Éva Mayer to find her own position by the universal language of art. Her personal topics grow into existential questions. This is the reason why her art is human and universal at the same time, besides dealing with problems typical for Central Europe.
