NO SERIOUS ART PLEASE
Laurina Paperina is a duck with a human head. She paints, draws, creates installations, video animations and sometimes even photographs. Paperina has over the past years created artworks especially about the art world that present an ironic commentary in response to current events. Laurina Paperina was born in 1980 in Rovereto, Italy; now She lives in Duckland, a small town in the universe and doesn't want to make serious art!
