Eva Graudenz grew up in the former GDR. Her great-grandfather, a landscape painter, supported her in art since she was a child. After his death, she won her federal state’s main youth prize. With her picture she interpreted Edward Munch’s “Scream” with her ocher tones in her own way.
At the age of 18, she published numerous poems in a book together with other authors. From then on, her love of poetry was reflected in her works. She then studied art at the TU Dortmund and exhibited her works in Germany. She is currently writing and illustrating her first children’s book about a colorful coexistence with dogs and ducks and has started studying illustration at the IBKK in
Bochum. Her art is extremely versatile. It ranges from creepy animated short films, to bright frog graphics and human paintings, to loving illustrations of animals and people. Her poems are present in some works.
“Art is my constant love. She was always with me, inside me and coming out of me. She was my big brother, my advisor, my compass, my worst critic, and sometimes the enemy to overcome.
She drove me, hugged me, tormented me until dawn, when I was ready to break away from mocking belief and show the unpreserved, the unheard, and the things behind the glamor.
Like a chimera, I now combined with the words and colors, and created an essential world.”
