Francesca Martí

Sóller, Mallorca, 1957

Francesca Martí lives and works in Mallorca. A multidisciplinary artist, she studied at the Escola Lliure de Mediterrani in Palma from 1985 to 1989 under Joaquim Torrens Lladó. Her career began in the late 1980s, but it was in the following decade that she became known on the Mallorcan artistic scene through painting, photography and installations. From 2002 on, Francesca Martí adopted the language of video which she combines with large painted, perforated canvases in her installations.
