Marina believes in natural wisdom, interconnectivity and the power of color. Her favorite places are the streets and big walls, which she is re-visiting and transforming into colorful paintings.
Through depictions of geometry and symmetry - the recognizable method of her creations - Marina emphasizes the importance of an equilibrium. Her works are placed in moments of absence of light, just after the twilight, where the real magic happens. The results are canvases, murals and installations bursting with energy and color, illuminated landscapes geometrically shaped to the surreal world of ideas.
Marina Zumi encountered the street art scene early on and was one of the initial participants of the formative experimental street art group "Expression Sessions" in Buenos Aires. One of the few female artists, Zumi came to street art from a fashion design background which has contributed to the development of a unique style that is colorful and feminine.
Drawing inspiration from nature, cosmos, sacred geometry, Quantic Theory and day-to-day life, Zumi combines idealized versions of animals, vegetation and nocturnal scenes for the creation of her very own natural bio-luminescent landscapes. Zumi develops magically graceful murals to provide oases of serenity amidst the crowded and noisy city streets.
Her Production inside the studio, "away from the sprays", is taking and embracing new directions and explorations. By sewing her artworks, she unwrapped the Flux of Energy, symbolizing connections between all beings - represented by the re-occurring motive of "seven lines": one central intention, parallel resonances, three positives and three negatives.
Based in her study of quantum theory, together with the study of the Cosmos, her knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and love for nature have led her to create and perform a more specific study of art. Marina is creating artworks sewn with gold, silver and black threads, increasingly approaching "Concrete Art".
Currently residing in Berlin, Zumi continues to develop both independent and collaborative works on the streets and in gallery settings all over the world. With all her craft and approach completely independent and self-taught, her development from graffiti to her current works has been a rich school of personal study.
