Born in Vigo (Spain), María Álvarez began studying drawing and painting at the age of 7 in the art workshop of Galician painter Mingos Teixeira. There, she soon inherited a passion for color and contemplation. Over the years she has been trained in disciplines such as music, audiovisual studies and applied creativity. This experience expanded her concept of image and opened her the door to other art forms such as film, photography and graphic design.
Her art is based on mental passages and chromatic richness, which builds subjects and scenes that, with expressionist gesture, are gradually decomposed into an atmosphere of abstraction. Under a very emotional motivation, strokes and color are tools to exalt an energetic vision of reality, which offers a thought about the relativity of our look.
