Inside the sketchbook of Mimi Ciora

We recently introduced you to the Super Smooth Studio of Timișoara based artists Mimi Ciora and Mircea Popescu, now we are back with a focus on the works of Mimi Ciora, who was also part of last month’s Breakfast of Superheroes exhibition.

Attracted to what she calls “the dark side of art” – tattoos, skulls, monsters, creepy plants etc. – Mimi Ciora loves to open her sketchbook, which she describes as a mirror reflecting her “evil” self, and just enjoy the process of creation, in an endless sketching of simple lines, obsessively drawn with marker or liner to fill the emptiness of the paper. Her works also extend to other media – canvas, wood, outdoor or indoor walls, diverse objects sculpted by herself or randomly found.

Sharing a few pages from her sketchbook, we discover highly detailed drawings, mostly black and white, daily thoughts and multiple representations of her moods, feelings or creative flashes.
