Dana Majana is a painter and drawer who is interested in the congruence between sight, experience and the translation of the hand. Her work is made by taking images and inspiration and imitating them using physicality of oil paint, spray paint, acrylic. Application and texture, speed and testing the memory play a role in the reproduction. Dana draws inspiration from everyday, mundane information that can feel overlooked or perhaps will be forgotten about.
She received her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting and Art History from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and her Masters of Fine Art in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Her work and life thrives on human interaction and teaching others about art and visual culture. She is currently a part-time lecturer of Art History and Visual Arts at Essex County College, Union County College and Brookdale Community College in New Jersey. She feels a strong connection between working with others and drawing inspiration from the random and ever changing day to day tasks.
