MARINA ZUMI

Over the past few years I’ve come to better understand how I define my practice: I am a multimedia, interdisciplinary artist, born in Argentina, citizen of Sao Paulo and currently based in Berlin.

 Although I never finished my degree at a design university and I became a self-taught artist, I started around 2003 with street art while still working as a fashion designer. Over the course of almost 20 years I have produced hand-embroidery artworks, site specific geometrical installations, murals, and now light installations. In between, I started an art collective in Sao Paulo that still runs as an art gallery today. I’ve painted in 20 countries and 4 continents (I just counted for the very first time in my life, and I’m shocked. I manage my studio and give studio space to other artists.

Through depictions of geometry and symmetry, the recognizable characteristics of her creations, I like to emphasize the importance of an equilibrium. I try and instill this across all my projects and mediums, whether mural, studio work or light installation. I like to think of my works as placed in moments where there is an absence of light, just after the twilight, where the real magic happens. The results are canvases, murals and installations bursting with energy and colour, illuminated landscapes geometrically shaped to the surreal world of ideas.
