Mara Heuer 




is an artist based in Halle/Saale, Germany.

She studied at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle (Master class of ATAK/Georg Barber) and graduated in 2021. 

Her work occupies an area somewhere between drawing, painting and illustration. But also printmaking, collage, film and sculpture complete her visual universe.

In her drawings, she explores the weirdness of action figures, fluffy cuddly toys and other crazy plastic stuff she finds interesting. Her influences range from 90‘s kids cartoons & comics over outsider & naive art, to weird 80‘s (horror) movie aesthetics or diy punk & tattoo culture.
