BIOGRAPHY & PUBLICATIONS

VALENTINA MURABITO                                                                                       

Born in Giarre (Italy), currently lives and works in Berlin. She studied photography at “Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design” in Budapest and graphic design at the "Academy of Fine Art of Catania".

Murabitos works are hybrids of different art forms, united in experimental analog photography. Her aesthetic outcome is a subtle play on the "reality" of photography and "fiction" of painting. In her current works she is shattering the boundaries of the baryta paper and developing photographs on different materials like cement, wood or directly on the wall.
