Oda Jaune was born Michaela Danowska in Sofia, Bulgaria. From 1998 to 2003, she studied in the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the class of Jörg Immendorff.

She currently lives and works in Paris. Her art focuses on the biomorphic, the collaged, the abnormal, which ensure that her work continually evades the viewers grasp. Her work plays with the themes of ambivalence, attraction and withdrawal. Internal organs and emotional states blend together in imaginative, unreal, and occasionally gruesome ways, resulting in disturbing yet poetic works. Deformities, masks, and phallic-like growths distort the subject being portrayed and elude the viewers search for clarification. Her high-profile and controversial marriage thrust Oda into the public eye.

This book strips back her celebrity and allows her unique talent to speak for itself. In 2012, she won the Pierre Cardin Prize in the Best Painter category and is represented by Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris.
