About the product

In her large-scale paintings Maja Vukoje uses acrylics, oils and spray paint. She utilises combs, spatulas and stencils and works with multiple layers of paint, as well as with runny paint and sprayed elements. In addition she applies hair, mirrors, straw and glitter, which causes the viewer to look even more closely to be able to make all these discoveries.

Maja Vukoje—herself with a migration background before coming to Vienna in 1988 to study, as she had grown up in Belgrade after spending her early childhood in Germany—is interested in subjects such as post-colonialism, gender and popular culture. Various cultural phenomena are merged, whereby the impression wavers as to whether this is something transcendental or factual, which lies in the style of painting, alienating and dramatising what is portrayed.The book presents a large selection of paintings as well as drawings from recent years. 

Maja Vukoje was born in Dusseldorf in 1969, grew up in Belgrad and studied at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, in the classes of Maria Lassnig and Christian Ludwig Attersee. She lives and works in Vienna.
