We are really excited to have the opporunity to speak with this special "Modern Muse" - Matete Martini.
Hello Matete- let's start.
Where are you right now?
I’m in Italy, back from Dubai, it was strange to travel in this period. I went for my project futureyoungtalent, an educational project really important for me. I’m happy to stay in Italy and work abroad. I like that in today's world I can live where I want, where I was born.
How would you describe a good day for yourself?
Feeling good with my body, in particular digestive issues, not feeling disappointed by the red period, feeling loved by my boyfriend, taking care of my home studio, feeling sun on my skin, feeling the world has hope.
What brings you inspiration?
After covid, I took inspiration more from the inside instead of the outside - I want to travel towards the past and feelings.
Do you like your job?
I love my job. It is consisted of production, curative projects, educational activities and sharing the art with my man -he is a photographer.
What colour describes you best?
Red, in small quantities changes everything. It keeps the attention and it is often considered the color of reactions of political and stronger stuff. A classic colour -always chosen as a colour for female dresses, shoes and lipstick. Sensual but also a "fighter".
Are you in love?
Totally, as I never have been. Everyday I feel very lucky - too much lucky.
What are you working on at the moment?
Sculptures and videos.
How do you define success?
Be happy, be loved, be in the right way. When you are going through this you feel the rise, you feel well, you feel you are going to the right place. But never arrive, when you arrive you stop - I don’t want to stop.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Good, Rebel, Instinctive
Modern Muses that inspire you and why?
Anh Doung, artist, model, actress. I love the way she moves, slowly, the way she paints. So classy, we need classy in this world. The time passes and she is comfortable with her self, or that’s what I see.
Thank you very much Matete, this was truly inspiring. Wish you all the very best in whatever comes your way. You are truly iconic and an absolute Modern Muse.
