Toronto, Ontario

Marina FAW is a Takronto (Toronto) based emerging mixed media artist. Born in Takronto and raised in Brasilia, Brazil. Her work consists of the relation between personal memories through the manipulation of folklore symbolism. Her practice reflects the exploration and process of creating environments from memory. The ethereal aspect of her work derives from an intuitive process inspired by the subjects from her heritage, Brazilian folklore as nature elements play an active role on communicating a mood. Her practice involves paintings that depict dream-like abstracted spaces. These pieces represent confronting personal experiences and the possibility to create a home for feelings. Working through emotional turmoil to convey a relatable narrative of resilience.Where symbols and characters are manipulated into an imaginative emotional space creating a new visual story.
