26-year-old artist Moki lives and works in Hamburg. Being an incredibly multi-talented and committed young artist, Moki's multi-media oeuvre comprises comics, drawings, paintings (on all imaginable surfaces), street art, plush toys, sculptures, clothing, music & performance. Even though her aesthetic often seems innocent and primarily decorative, there's always a rather surreal - if not nightmarish - quality to her works.

I had the great pleasure and honour to meet her at last year's Fumetto comics festival in Lucerne and instantly had to buy her Asleep In A Foreign Place monograph so that I'd always have a piece of Moki on my bookshelf.

Moki is part of the international network From Bee to Bee, co-runs an independent artspace called Hinterconti, takes part in Spring - an annual art publication issued by twelve women - and draws for the comic anthology Orang.

Readers who are still unfamiliar with her work now have the chance to not only see her recent artworks on display, but can also make acquaintance with the works of Lily Wittenburg during a two-person show at Iguapop Gallery, Barcelona, entitled Wordless Patchy Fog Upon Lands Of Fact And Fancy. Errm... yes.

On show: March 27 - April 26, 2008

Address: Iguapop Gallery & Shop, Comerç 15, 08003 Barcelona, Spain, tel:+34 933 100 735

    I can't praise Moki enough. Definitely worth seeing. And a very nice young woman, too.

    Yes, and oh so helpful. I actually mistook her for a technician at last year's Fumetto because she helped so many other artists building their exhibitions. Very committed person indeed!
