Hi.

The name, "Ninu Nina" stems from the alien language spoken by Robin Williams in "Mork & Mindy" ( a popular 1970's comedy show).

NO SERIOUS ART PLEASE

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 on the art world that present a ironic commentary in response to current events. Laurina Paperina took part to several publications, exhibitions and art fairs around the world. She 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!
