Mirka Mora. 2015.

Our own National Living Treasure and darling of the Melbourne art world, the ever fabulous and soon to be 87, Mirka Mora opened her 2015 exhibition on Thursday evening at the William Mora Galleries in Richmond.  Mirka's trademark motifs of creatures, children and cherubs continue to populate her canvases with incredible life and vigour, much like the good artist herself.  With more energy that many folk half of her age and a naughty, wicked twinkle in her eye, our beloved Mirka held court, giggling, telling stories and signing/decorating all books and papers put before her.  She charmed her adoring audience as ever.  

Nic-Nak Castle, Mirka fans.

William Mora, gallery owner and son, proudly introducing his mum.

Since arriving in Melbourne in the 1950's from France, Mirka has been been prominent in a artistic and social clique that assisted in taking Melbourne from a provincial outpost to the worldly sophisticated metropolis that we are today.  A wonderful and rare gem she is indeed.

See her latest work at
60 Tanner Street, Richmond,
Until April 3rd.

Love Mirka.
