New art by Hernán Marina

‘Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional’. For many people, the monograph Die Deutsche Reihe (The German Series) will be quite shocking and provocative. It’s Hernán Marina’s first book published by arta revista.

The Argentine contemporary artist did a masterly composition of quotes taken from Buddhism and other similar religious persuasions and combined them with his uncensored and explicit drawings. These visual interpretations are a new direction for the multi-sided artist and a great addition to his already very successful work like COLOSO or Men’s Health, which were exhibited in the MALBA (Museum Latin American Art) in Buenos Aires during the last year.

About the author

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.
