Marina Esmeraldo is a multidisciplinary artist from Fortaleza, Brazil, now based between Barcelona and London. Her work draws on a tropical upbringing, a Modernist training in Architecture and her innate wanderlust. She combines her artistic projects and research for exhibitions and installations with commissioned pieces for select brands.

Her work has been featured by Vogue, Marie Claire, CNN and Google, among others. She has exhibited around the world, including in the Venice Biennale, and has given talks and been awarded honours in Europe, the U.K., the U.S. and Latin America.

Artist Statement      

Marina is interested in the tension between alienation and belonging through travelling: a product of moving between continents and cultures since childhood, she constantly seeks to place-make through memory and signification. Working across disciplines and materials through the abstract re-composition of places visited and imagined, she represents consciousness shaped by inner perception, in order to make sense of her constant otherness: the architecture of emotional places.
