Marthe Mekuria's Art flows effortlessly from nothing and out of nowhere onto canvas like the water from a never ending stream. Amserdam is also the home of Vincent Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Karel Appel, Mondrian and so many more. Perhaps growing up in a country where it's mostly dark, cloudy and green ( if you know what I mean) boosts creativity.
Ever since Marthe was a child, she's painted on anything and everything. From shoes, to clocks, to walls, it drove her mother insane. Especially when at one point she started to use nothing but boxes full of nail polish to create her art. Some of Marthe's favorite designers are Shirt King Phade, Melody Ehsani, Dapper Dan.
