MariSel Art
Love Yourself
Dedicated to all women in the world
Love Yourself Project
In the project "Love Yourself" which consists of video art, series of acrylic paintings and photography MariSel reacts on the problem of women who can't accept themselves and at the same time on the public condemnation of female sexuality. Most of women are playing any other roles but not being themselves. MariSel encourages all women to stop fighting with themselves and stop being ashamed with their bodies and personalities. She shows that all women are given with beautiful bodies which they should accept as they are. The idea of the project is that women must understand the power of female energy that they can use it to create whatever they want. Pleasing and playing with herself using clitoral stimulator while painting Marisel shows that women are blessed with the opportunity to enjoy their bodies and can transform their feminine energy in pieces of art. The artist shows that even being sexual doesn't mean to be a foolish woman with no serious dedications and talents. All women must stop being afraid to transmit this resourcefulness in this world and finally be who they truly are.

Love yourself. Love to be a woman. Love your sexuality. Love your body. Love your femininity. Love your effeminacy. Love what you do. Love to imagine. Love to create. Love to communicate. Love to be unique. Love to be different. Love to explore yourself. Love to accept yourself. Love to express yourself. Love to be true. Love to be you!

There are limits only in our heads
Venice International Performance Art Week
MariSel was honored to be a part of Venice International Performance Art Week working in the group of performance artists all over the globe leaded by tutors Andrigo&Aliprandi. She took part in Collective Performance Opera and made her solo performance "Lesson №9" during 3 days opened for public visit. The main idea of "Lesson №9" was exploring herself with the statement "The wizard lives in the state of exploring. By this exploring his perfection is determined" inspired by the book of Deepak Chopra "The Way of The Wizard" . The main topic of the collective performance opera was "Political body".

During many years of an experience as a traveler MariSel collected knowledge from various cultures. She strengthened her believe that everything happens for a reason and that all is guided by a universal power.
In 2015 she suffered an almost fatal accident and after that she felt the need to start painting. She studied oil painting at art classes in Bali and then passed several months in an art hub in Barcelona. Maria is a healer, a person with an access to the knowledge about our destiny, our abilities and the purpose of our lives that can be activated to help others to be better people, to awaken, to stay healthy and to live a happy life. It's hard for her to explain the process of healing and where she gets inspiration from, but she addresses to the words of genius Nicola Tesla: "My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists." Art became her instrument of interconnecting her abilities and expressing herself in this world.
