Location: Italy

My name is Mariaceleste Arena, I am an Italian artist. Since I embarked on my artistic journey I have followed multiple paths, I like to experiment a lot with different techniques to bring to light my inner world, the war that burns inside my mind that gives birth to many ideas that I often can't keep calm. I have a lot of fantasy ideas and I don't think I see reality as it really is, but I prefer to rework it in a very personal way and on the edge of the surreal / absurd / grotesque. I want my art not only to amaze, but also to make people think and have fun at the same time. A goal not always easy.

I often like to explore new worlds, not only the field of art understood in a classic / traditional sense, but also digital, the field of new technologies used to create art and thus experiment with new forms of communication.

I think art must always be innovative, it is a mental process so it is always in constant transformation.
