Marita Fontana

I’m a mixed media artist with Graphic design, Communication, Music, Publicity and Business studies in Perú. I left from Lima almost 30 years ago , currently residing in Amsterdam.

I feel very fortunate to be a result of an amalgamation of ethnicities which are a constant source of inspiration and which I carry as a responsibility to continue giving the minorities a voice .

I’m fascinated by the complexity of human beings and therefore, they are the main subject of my creations.

These are a result of a conversation between my interior world – complex and often chaotic – and reality.

My art often reflects that moment where negative emotions are transformed into joy, peace or transformation, personal symbolism that turn into an explosion of color and shapes.

My inspiration is life itself, how I lived it, how I remember it.
