Martina Paukova

Martina Paukova

The banal, the everyday and the awkward - all enlivened with a pop palette, pattern and graphic shapes making Martina Paukova’s work such a visual pleasure. Originally Martina had plans to work in politics, graduating with a politics degree before moving to London where she studied Graphic Design at the London College of Illustration. Not satisfied, she then moved on to gain an MA in Visual Arts & Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, so you know she’s got the brains to back her skills, what a package.

Now based in Berlin living the freelance dream Martina deconstructs daily scenes and domestic routines, flattening to simplicity and feeling constantly fascinated with the exploration of mudane, boring everyday things. Becoming increasingly popular over the last couple of years we are pleased to represent this artist on the rise so get in touch to commission her for your project
