Marina Kassianidou is a visual artist whose work focuses on relationships between mark and surface. She graduated from Stanford University, where she was a CASP/Fulbright scholar, with degrees in Studio Art and Computer Science. She obtained an M.A. in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and a Ph.D. in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts, London, UK. She has exhibited her work in the UK, USA, Cyprus, Israel, Germany, Greece, France, Italy, Spain, and Belgium. Selected awards include grants from the A. G. Leventis Foundation and fellowships at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, and Ragdale Foundation. She is a recipient of the 2016 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant.

Marina works within painting, drawing, collage, and installation, focusing on processes of marking. Her marks in each work form a direct response to whatever surface she is working with. At Can Serrat she will be working on drawings on index cards, a series of collages on ordinary lined paper, and a series of collages and paintings on furnishing fabrics.
