Lizza May David

Visual artist Lizza May David studied Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and Visual Communication/Media Art at the University of Arts Berlin. Much of her previous work stems from her biography and investigates issues of identity, labor/migration and memory. Her paintings today reflect her contextual artistic disposition, understanding the canvas as a sensorium for subjective and collective issues.
