Marcella Novotny


Marcella Novotny is an artist and fashion designer from Genoa, Italy where she lives and works.

A graduate in Architecture from the University of Geona, Novotny’s artistic journey began as an illustrator with an emphasis on Black and White contrasts.

All of her works begin with a “BIC” black pen. The use of the “BIC” pen for Marcella is an signature aspect of her works and expresses her love for this iconic object. After a deep search and full dedication to Black and White contrasts, in the last few years Novotny has switched to using bright colors – exploring and investigating different pigments and using canvas, wood, plastic and resin in her mixed media works. Novotny constantly explores contrasts and paradoxes in her works. Her latest works feature 3D resin sculptures as part of her canvas landscape.

Novotny has exhibited her works all over the world – from her native Italy to Dubai to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Singapore. Marcella has achieved “International Art Rockstar” status from the statement pieces and the personality she brings to Art Fort Lauderdale year after year, including an installation mural in that city she created in 2019.
