Malle Leis was a renowned Estonian painter and printmaker. After studying at the Tartu Art School (1958–1961) and the Estonian Academy of Arts (1961–1967), she later became a member of the legendary artist group ANK 64. Her floral fantasies flirt with Pop Art and coded eroticism. Portraits of family and friends as well as horses are recurrent motifs in her works.

1940–2017. B. Viljandi, Eestonia. Lived and worked in Tallin, Estonia.
