Margherita Paoletti is an artist and illustrator. She was born in Fabriano in 1990. She graduated at the European Institute of Design of Rome in Illustration and Animation in 2013. Also, she attended courses at Central Saint Martins and BTK in Berlin. In 2016 she has been doing Artistic Residencies in Estonia and Japan, focusing on personal projects and exhibitions. In 2017 she moved to London where she has worked as a creative designer for an ethical brand called Bex Rox Studio. Currently she is based in Italy, where she is working as a freelancer artist and illustrator, developing her artistic practice through exhibitions.
Margherita’s poetic is based on the central theme of the body, conceived as an organic container holding life, dreams, desires, memories and experiences. Margherita tries to translate into a visual expression the new organic physiognomy of the body, made of narration, visual metaphors, colours and nature.
