Cristina Martella was born in Atri, in the province of Teramo, where she lives and works. As a child she is attracted to painting but she graduated in Economics in Pescara. After university and a short trip to London, she decides to follow her dreams and devotes herself exclusively to painting, moving from the figurative to a mature and personal sign, the fruit of a fantasy and a living imagination.
Her works are tales of nature, flowers, flying insects, in an explosion of details. “I paint what I see”.
Her painting turns more and more conceptual. And her pictorial research is refined “by subtraction” creating a personal cosmogony. The canvas becomes a spatial movement full of small signs so fantastic to seem real.
