Announcement   My name is Marta Fofi, Italian artist and designer based in Ibiza.
I love the relaxed way of life and the cosmopolitan atmosphere it exudes here. The presence of bright and lively colours is felt strongly in my art, which is influenced by its light, the sunshine and the carefree atmosphere.
I like to define my style: "Mediterranean Pop".

After studying in Rome at the Academy of Costume and fashion with an emphasis in design of accessories, I worked several years as a freelance designer in various goldsmith workshops in Arezzo (Italy).
I landed in Ibiza in 2000 and started selling a line of bags and t-shirts with graphics elements taken from my drawings in various “Hippies” markets on the island.
After so many years, my style has evolved with me and two years ago I left the markets and I opened an Art shop in the italian restaurant Can Domingo in Ibiza.

I like to sew and embroidery, it’s a slow work that requires patience and brings me back to the dimension of a time when things were made with care. I completely lose track of time as I immerse myself in a creative space where there is no time. I like to think of the needle as a tool to mend and heal the wounds with love.
When I start to using textile I was looking for an unusual expressive media where it was strongly present the side of the handmade craft and at the same time create an impact and feel that it was contemporary.
This store is a way to give a new life to my illustrations applying them on clutch bags, prints and notebooks.

I likes to think that people, through my artworks, reconnect with their inner child and enjoy looking at and share the same pleasure I experience in creating it.


Personally I am in charge of the whole production process, leaning to local craftsmen. Taking care of every single detail to make it special and unique your every purchase and distinguishing it from any mass product.

Such a beautiful piece! High quality art print of a design I was very excited to see come out in both print and embroidery. Prompt and friendly service and answering questions; item arrived overseas well-packaged and in perfect condition. Would give more than 5 stars if they let me :)

Welcome!
Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop Marta Fofi Artworks.

I hope you enjoy my various artworks as much as I do and you found what are you looking for!

All my artworks are hand made one by one by me and are 100% made in Ibiza.

My handmade pieces are purposefully different one of each others and any imperfections is part of their artistic charm.
Maybe a slight variation in color than what appears on your computer screen.

If you have any questions or problems with your order please do not hesitate to contact me, I will be delighted to help you.

Greeting from Ibiza!
Marta
