MARTA MARIA TRENTI's BIO
Marta Maria Trenti, after getting her diploma as Architectural Engineering in 1994, began her artistic journey in 1996, when she attended the ceramic workshop of Master Ceramist Giancarlo Scapin in Schio (VI) Italy.
A real imprinting that awoke an interest for creativity, initially oriented towards clay, but which would gradually include an interest also in drawing, oil painting, tattooing and gradually becoming predominant for porcelain.
From 2008 to 2010 she attended, together with her partner tattoo artist Ivan Duso, classes about hyperealist oil painting from Master Luigi Pellanda. drawing from Master Livio Comparin and printing from Master Ivo Mosele.
Through travelling, she comes into contact with various realities linked to the world of tattooing, but not only.
Frequent visits to museums, conventions and exhibitions all over Europe, developed in Marta a need to express herself, which she manifests in 2011 with her first official collaboration with Tattoo Idea, an international magazine, for which she creates a series of Tattoo Illustrations.
From 2013 to 2016 she worked as a tattoo artist, collaborating with various studios in Europe.
In 2013 Marta landed in Berlin, where she further explored her interest in clay and in 2015 took an intensive course at the Atelier of British artist Sasha Kay Wardell, where she learned the technique of preparing plaster moulds and working with porcelain.
In 2015 she began a period of experimentation and research that led in 2016 to the launch of the first unique pieces produced in her atelier.
In 2016 collaborates with ceramist Bernhard Kühn di Kühn Keramik (Berlin) and together with her partner Ivan, creates 5 illustrations for Kühn’s Big Coffe Mug, which is still in production.
