Madrid-based painter.

 

Born in Vigo (Spain), María began to study drawing and painting at the age of 7 in the studio of the renowned painter Mingos Teixeira. There, she inherited the passion for colour and contemplation. While developing her painting skills, she also took music and piano lessons through several years. When she turned 18, María moved to Madrid to pursue a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree both in Audiovisual and Applied Creativity Studies. This experience expanded her concept of image and opened her the door to other forms of art such as film, photography and graphic design. 

 

Her art is based on mental passages and chromatic richness, which builds subjects and scenes that, with expresionist gesture, are gradually decomposed into an atmosphere of abstraction and impression. Through a very emotional motivation, stroke and colour are tools to exalt an energetic vision of reality, which offers a thought about the relativity of our look.
