Mariaceleste Arena was born in Messina. Since she was a child, she expressed herself through drawing, as if it was the only way to dialogue with the world.
She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Reggio Calabria, expanding her views and artistic techniques, where from her preference of pastels and acrylics she evolved to preferring the use of digital art.
In her works there is a mixture of fantasy, irony and torment which create opposing emotions and thoughts.
Her aim when observing her works is to stimulate the thought and entertain.
