Mari Otberg is the creative head behind the concept „justMariOt“ well known for its self-mockery, love to details and perfectionism. By using different forms and creations she records the things that affect us. The lust for life, but also mental torments and fears. In her work, which comprises a huge spectrum from creative drawings to fashion designing, she combines emotion and individuality.
She studied fashion design in Bremen and Hamburg before leaving to London (initially supported by a DAAD scholarship) where she founded the brand “justMariOt” ten years ago. In the year 2001 she moved to Berlin und some time later opened her own showroom at the “Scheunenviertel”. Otberg has realized a lot of shows, installations and exhibitions in different cities and has worked as an illustrator for magazines and agencies. Furthermore she has brought about several projects in cooperation with enterprises like Swarovski, the Goethe Institute or L’oréal. Her drawings and freelance works are exhibited regularly and for the first time she illustrated a book.
Mari Otberg has received huge response from local and international press since she has started her career. Her art and fashion is loved by enthusiasts everywhere around the globe.
