Laurina Paperina


In her cartoonish satirical artwork, Italian artist Laurina Paperina loves to mock famous contemporary artists. As well as their big name dealers. And, for that matter, even herself. In fact, no art celebrity is safe from torture in her animations, installations and prolific works on paper. The motivation of her relentless abuse is a wild sense of humor, a commentary on contemporary forms of media, and a successful attempt to make light of the all too often serious pretensions of today's art world. Despite their often gruesome acts, her child-like characters are disarming and full of wit. She has exhibited extensively both in her native Europe and far beyond.
