Martina Merlini (Bologna, 1986) lives and works in Milan.
From illustration to geometric abstraction; a path that leads the artist to experience and learn about herself through various expressive contexts such as, among others, street art and installations. Materials such as wax and varnishes, applied to poor media as paper and wood, best express the constant research of a quiet and powerful compositional balance. Thick and symmetrical pictorial lines suddenly are disjointed by new forces and forms that seem to follow natural instincts and impulses.
There has been numerous exhibitions dedicated to her, both in Europe and in America.
Among the various events and festivals which she take part are Living Walls, first festival of street art only for women held in Atlanta (USA) in 2012, and the prestigious Le Mur in Paris, in 2015.
