Bio & CV:
Born in Budapest in 1955, to Holocaust survivors and art collectors, Eva Beresin became passionate about drawing and painting when she was a little child while sitting with her parents weekly at Café Gerbeaud in Budapest. There Eva loved to observe the “old” ladies with her wild makeup and styling.
Eva Beresin graduated from the School of Fine art in Budapest and has an expansive career encompassing 43 years. Beresin’s practice showcase array of figurative styles and installation.
The mundane daily occurrences of life, shopping, sharing meals and playing games together come across as funny-mostly by way of cartoonishly distorted, engorged hands, feet, and facial features.
