Dora Budor and Maja Cule are a Siamese twin design/ artist duo based in Brooklyn, NY. Both artists originated from Eastern Europe where they had first met at a speed-dating event. Though they were both endeared to each other (Dora, with her impressive knowledge of creating origami salt and pepper shaker holders, and Maja, with her understanding ofthe meaning of life), the two did not work with each other until they were reunited in design school.
Upon first glance, Dora and Maja’s paintings, drawings, and installations are attention grabbing, with their sporadic placements of perverse imagery, raw design, and a whole lot of humor. They use these characteristics to articulately communicate concepts as sweet as a love letter poster to their boyfriend, to serious matters, such as the national addiction to prescription drugs and immigration issues. And although Dora and Maja are each their own individuals, when combined, their work is crafted into one harmonious stream of eccentrically inspiring consciousness.
