Marija Verde was born in Naples, Italy and she currently lives and works in Milan. Marija attended illustration and graphic design school at COMIX school in Naples and later received a degree in Painting and Graphic Design for Public Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts of Naples.
Marija explains the work by saying, “My style espouses well the fields of fashion and press. I love drawing with less colors and more imagination. I love drawing the female body, especially the face. After being a hyperrealist portraitist for years, I found my own style, drawing with less color and more imagination. I draw inspiration from faces or gazes which strike me.”
