Nichilismo&Fastidio aka Foxi

Foxi is a small town girl. She starts her career obtaining a diploma at Carrara’s Art School. Afterwards, her great passion for comics  and especially for mangas brings her to attend a course where she develops several comic techniques in Pisa (It).
In the same time, putting in practice the d.i.y. philosophy she starts to produce jewels made only with salvaged materials and travel all around Italy and Europe selling them at punk concerts and free parties.
After a couple years her hobby become a real proper label called Action Recyclage.
In 2007 Foxi moves to Berlin where she finds an interesting environment and she develop a passion for photography mixing the classical 50s pin up aesthetic with the more contemporary “tank girl” imaginary. In the same time she uses her photography even to create graphics for many parties, especially for the queer anarcho-feminist collective Liebig 34.
Besides photography she have a great passion for stage design which bring her to experiment different techniques, and optimize her manual skills.
The main Foxi’s quality it’s her natural-born aptitude to learn and use a lot of different way of expression which define her as an artist with a constant creativity in motion.
