Marta Velasco Velasco is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Mediterranean. She honed her art practice in London, having studied textile design at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art.
Marta’s practice includes textile art, video, installation and painting; she conceives her work as an exploration of local narratives and material identities. She is currently in an artist residency at Fabra i Coats, researching transcultural textile traditions that link Southeast Asia with the Balearic Islands.
The pieces created for Inland are made by hand in short runs at her own studio in downtown Barcelona, which allows her to track down each of the materials she is using and understand the impact of every material choice.
