Multi-disciplinary artist Mara Minuzzo is known for both her works of contemporary realism as well as her striking abstract works. Primarily self-taught, her diverse influences include the natural world, people, illustration and architecture. For the artist her abstract works represent a refreshing counterbalance to the formality of her figurative work. While her realism works centre on an overall theme of illusion and pushing the boundaries of the genre, her abstract works are about playful interplays of colour, line and shape. Mara’ Minuzzo's work is exhibited regularly at international art fairs and resides in private collections worldwide.
