Mareike Muller

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you'll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador's wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.

By Mareike Muller in New Art on Saturday 15 February 2014

Young Russian artist Pavel Platonov literally faced many obstacles before he started to delight us not only with his dark and intense photography, but also with his large installations made from used mirror, metal and other sharp and raw materials.

Mareike Muller Contributor
