Mari Pshenichnikova

Maria Pshenichnikova is a Russian artist based in Moscow. Maria’s project is called MARP. The name derives from her first and last name and her education history.  She studied at MARHI (Moscow Architectural Institute) (graduated in 2012 ) and at Polimoda (graduated in 2014).

The philosophical beginning in the forming of a costume image is as an important aspect, as its mere utilitarian purpose. Both for the consumer, and for the author creativity is a material and semantic embodiment of the individual world. Dialogical personal approach becomes a kind of a tool to realize the creative idea of humanity self-expression and revealing human features through clothes.

The founder, the fashion designer, the director of the project MARP Maria Pshenichnikova presents her every collection through video or performance, which most fully allows to plunge into the theme offered by the author. This is due to the desire to create the atmosphere of specific meditation and self-reflection, and in an emotional way to weld the viewer and the collection into an integrated whole.

MARP project is a figurative modeling laboratory. Figurative modeling is an individual-subjective process, it is a way of realizing a personal vision of the world in creating a new one. It is a form of social activity that is a means of stimulating creativity in the creation of an art form. The project has a three-part structure, consisting of the following components:
-creation of a collection, performance, video film, installation;
-working with the client’s image in search of an individual clothing solution;
-conducting master classes and personal trainings.
