Marcella Marsella is a self-taught outsider artist & the one woman show behind Serious Business, her handmade art enterprise. Undiagnosed mania compelled Marsella to teach herself everything she knows about art, specifically what it is, how to look at it, how to talk about it & how to make it.
Naturally, the work space shared by a crafting business & visual art making practice brought about a merging of these two modes. Her credit card mosaics and puffy paintings manifested themselves after years of these art forms living side by side.
Marsella is currently working on large scale paintings of her original Magic Eyes in an attempt to address the tiresome epidemic of catcalling. As you read this, she is toiling away in her studio creating a series of works based on color blindness tests which will comprise her upcoming 2019 calendar. Stay tuned for that!
Serious Business work is proudly conceived, produced, patented, copyrighted, trademarked & made in the Bottom, West Philadelphia.
