Hortensia Mi Kafchin is known for her complex, surreal figurative paintings. In 2010, she graduated from the University of Art and Design in Cluj, where she specialised in pottery, glass and metal. Working with a broad range of media from drawing and painting to sculpture and installation, Kafchin immerses her viewer into dystopian and sensual scenarios backed by mythological and historical themes that invite us to question readings of the past and of the present.

She participated in the 2013 Prague Biennale, Czech Republic and La Triennale in Paris in 2012, France and is collected by renowned private and public collections such as the Art Collection Telekom Centre, Germany; Centre National d’Art et de Culture Georges-Pompidou in Paris, France.
