Marcella Giannini is an Italo-Colombian artist and illustrator based in Rome. She has a BA in printmaking from the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, a MA in printmaking from the CIEC Foundation in Spain and is currently finishing her MA studies in Papermaking at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome.
Her work mainly combines papermaking techniques, textile art and natural dyes experiments. In her latest works, she uses her own-made paper thread to create tapestries with geometric patterns.
At Copper Leg Art Residency, she will combine textile techniques with natural dyes to create a functional sculpture that addresses the theme of inhabiting and community. The art object will be presented this Saturday at Rae Schoolhouse during the event “Sirakas”.
