Verena Mack is an illustrator, tattoo artist and animation artist. Her artistic works are characterized by a strong language of forms and bright colors. When illustrating, funny, colorful characters and scenes are created, which fill the entire format with expansive geometric and organic shapes. In her works she also likes to deal with current topics such as environmental protection, sexism, gender, etc., whereby it is important to her to humorously exaggerate the absurdities of reality and also to show a certain (self-)irony. Often animations are created from the illustrations to bring the colorful worlds to life.
