German-born artist, Martina Hoffmann, spent her childhood in Cameroon, equatorial West Africa. She grew up in a multi cultural environment with German parents, a French education and the indigenous African culture which informed her life at the deepest instinctual levels. The raw power of nature, the all-pervasive earth magic and spirit that touches all people who live in this rich environment as well as the colors and sensuality of Africa have had a lasting influence on her life and work.
Later she majored in art with professor Kiefer (father of Anselm Kiefer) and studied sculpting at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, with Professor Spelmann.
Today Martina Hoffmann works as a painter and sculptress and is a central figure in contemporary Visionary Art.
