eliana marinari

Oh, the dreamy dreaminess. This is the work {acrylic, ink and spray paint on paper!} of Geneva based artist/scientist¬†Eliana Marinari. Yes. I said scientist. Here’s her very inspiring story:

“Eliana began her training in Florence as a scientist, earning a degree in Biotechnology, while studying Art under the mentoring of Greta Villa and Donatella Sfogli, from Accademia of Florence. She continued her studies in London, where she obtained a PhD at University College London.

In 2013, she moved to Switzerland, where she continued her quest in bridging the gap between Art and Science. Her experimental work is the result of this research and combines new technologies with the more traditional oil painting techniques.¬†In 2015, she received the prestigious Swiss National Fund Award for the development of an interdisciplinary project. She set up her studio at Foound, and created a community of artists with the aim of supporting and promoting female artists from French-speaking Switzerland.”

YES!!!
