Marina Secondo russo
Martina Secondo Russo was born in Genoa, Italy but has lived in New York for most of her life. After attending CalArts in Los Angeles, she and her husband Frank returned to New York in 2003 to open a space to show Underground Pop Art. Martina paints both on canvas and plywood cut into the shapes of limbs and full bodies. She also co-created MF Toys, a line of cute and creepy handmade toys made of cast plastic, silk-screened canvas and faux fur. Her work is inspired by: horror, tattoos, toys, renaissance art, pin-up art, and the juxtaposition of beauty with the grotesque.
