Art on Paper


 Hello! I’m Marianna. I’m a multi-dimensional artist based in Berlin.

The nature of my art is sustainable as my works by definition recycle paper.

I mostly use watercolor and often add ink in order to paint various silhouettes and feminine figures on vintage paper, while combining realistic and abstract elements. The visual style of my work and the sense of ageing and transience inherent to old paper exist in a good balance and even enhance each other. I always love to combine pencil, watercolor and ink as a basis for my illustrations. The fact that you can never fully control the outcome inspires me a lot. You need to embrace the results together with inherent mistakes. With watercolor, mistakes are natural.
