Bori Benkő was born in 1977 and lives in Fremantle, Western Australia.
From the age of 13, Bori started her training in fine arts, eventually graduating with a Masters Degree in Maurer Dora's Painting class at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest.
During her 30 years of art practice Bori has explored many art forms, technics of printing and painting, photography and film. She has created kinetic installations, site-specific artworks and public art, exhibiting her works around Europe and Asia.
In recent years, she expanded her areas of expertise, researching natural dying techniques in Asia, developing her own dyes and paints from plant and mineral extracts.
Alongside her main practice of painting and screen printing of the past decade, she created various one of a kind or limited edition series of clothing, accesories and homewares - 'Lineage', 'Dream', with materials that she had woven, coutured and died with natural dyes. The motives of her artworks have travelled onto bags, dresses, cushions and homewares - to become alive in use. These creations are hand screen-printed and are purchasable on this webshop.
As a mother and admirer of children's natural creative talent, Bori holds Creative workshops for children and is currently working on children's books projects.
