Mirka Mora is one of Melbourne’s most colourful personalities and best-loved artists.
Arriving in Melbourne from Paris in 1951, Mirka and her husband Georges contributed significantly to the local art scene and the city’s gradual transformation into a sophisticated metropolis. Her studio at 9 Collins Street became a hub for Melbourne’s bohemian set, which transferred to Mirka Café in Exhibition Street and later the Moras other restaurants, Balzac and Tolarno.
Wicked But Virtuous presents an eccentric account of a life lived with great passion and gusto.
This autobiography delves into Mirka's practice, lovers and family and all those who have played a part in her life.
