Martina Garofalo was born in Castellammare di Stabia January 21, 1994.
She Shows a natural talent in drawing and though she does not choose artistic studies, she doesn't abandon this passion.
The continuous search to improve her skills leads her to take a course about Traditional Media held by Maestro Enrico De Cenzo in Sorrento in 2009-2011.
The style has gone through different phases: first, there is a strong inspiration for the world of comics, but later it becomes evident the influence of digital art.
Finally, the artist returns to the classic drawing and traditional media.
In all these phases the materiality of the body maintains a central role.
However, this return to models so classic, Martina Garofalo fits new and innovative elements, such as flashes of color that highlight the focal points of the works.
In addition, headlines show a sort of conceptualism.
