Marina Fini is a multi-media artist who challenges social constructs and empowers suppressed communities through her work. Following a spiritual liberation from her Los Angeles upbringing, she discovered her love for plexiglass and jewelry making— which eventually led her to fabricate large scale immersive installations and furniture. Challenging the stereotype of beauty, femininity and fashion, her installations, films and photography have an out-of-this-world dreamy feel and are vibrant with positive energy.
