Martina joined CITYFÖRSTER in 2022. With a background in Art History and Archaeology, she eventually graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in Digital Arts at the University of Malta. This bachelor's course gave her a better understanding of photography, editorial design and graphic design. After graduating, Martina worked as a freelance photographer and graphic design assistant with the national cultural centre in Malta, Heritage Malta. She has also worked as a book distributor with Shimmer, a curatorial studio in Rotterdam (NL) that experiments with exhibition-making.
Martina is keen on the processes of design and how the interplay of architecture and design can create new synergies. When she is not working on graphic design tasks, she focuses on her artistic practice which, next to pottery, are photographic studies in relation to bookmaking and archiving.
