Rita Ackermann was born in Budapest, Hungary and now lives and works as an artist from New York, NY. She has exhibited in galleries across the world. All of the images I have used are from her website, here. There is also a nice interview of her, here. In the interview Rita Ackermann says that her art shows her learning experiences and social awareness she got from growing up in the "streets". I love the way that she uses media in unexpected ways. I also like her style of composition and figures.
