Flashback to New York by marina silva

          I recently stumbled upon my last creations while living in Brooklyn that really defined the vibe I wanted to encompass within my work and interior design. 

          The concept behind Marsinha is not necessarily to make drawings, but to enhance senses and make environments. So its not only something your looking at, but the way its placed and the smells and sounds around it: the search for absolute comfort. In this case, living in the chaos that is metropolitan New York City, the places we live in become our sanctuaries, where one can escape the noisy clusterfuck outside the window into a peaceful chill safe spot. (and I usually tend to bring some nature into it, we tend to forget green and the influence it can have on us)

          Again, Marsinha is not only two dimensional strokes on paper, there are also other products involved, objects you can take with you. A collection of artifacts that give you a piece of me, and that are made to be transformed in time, and to nomadically travel from one owner to the next. Consider them an amulet of good vibes and appreciation of beauty, whether it be for your walls, or your feet.

Dado el hambre junto con mis viejos cuates de la oficina de 23 Grados, decidimos empezar un blog de comida, Donde Hay Gordura Hay Hermosura. Aquí nos gusta retratar los platillos que solemos comer en la vida diaria, ya que nuestros paladares insaciables nos invitan a comer fuera constantemente. Documentando las delicias que la Ciudad de México tiene para ofrecer, acumulamos una lista de los Go-To lugares que mas nos apapachan el apetito sin inventar sobre lugares que aparentan estar mas ricos de lo que son.

Que Dios Te Perdone y el Karma Te Chingue by marina silva

On October 1st, I presented my solo show "Que Dios Te Perdone y el Karma Te Chingue Pt. II" 

As a continuation of my thesis show, I presented the pieces I had been working on in the past year upon my return to my hometown. The show spoke about the influence of the contemporary visual culture in the digital age and the de-sexualization and objectification of the female body, as an identity-less sculpture. 

Exploring in new media sizes is an expression of living in a place with space as opposed to the confined cluster as is New York City. The cultural shift among both cultures is absorbed in the work, speaking of a trend diaspora as it travels south of the border.
