After graduating in art history (with Erasmus in the Faculty of Literature and Philosophy of Perugia), and working for two years as a researcher at the Museum of Pontevedra, I began my training in fine arts with a master’s degree in painting at the Libera Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, as a consequence of a scholarship for the extension of artistic studies granted by the Diputación de A Coruña in 2009. The scholarship was renewed in 2011 and 2012, and I used it to take courses in engraving at the same university, as well as workshops of Stamperia del Tevere. From 2012 to 2014 I combined my studies with a job as assistant to the international artist Pietro Ruffo, in the Fondazione ex-Pastificio Cerere. In 2014 I moved to Poland to continue at the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts in Łódz with my engraving training, which later continued in Galicia, thanks again to a scholarship granted by the International Center of Printmaking Art in Betanzos (Fundación CIEC).
In Spain, I have shown my work individually and collectively in places such as the Sargadelos Gallery of Ferrol and Pontevedra, the Fundación Cuña Casas-Vellas, the Eugenio Granell Foundation and the Gallery About Art, of which I am one of the in house artists. As such, I participate in a regular basis in different projects such as the Room Art Fair in Madrid. In Italy, at the Galleria 20 Art Space, at the Monumental Complex of Santo Spirito in Sassia, at the Rome University of Fine Arts, and as a guest artist from the Kokeshi Rebel Fest (Italian Festival about the feminine vision of culture and oriental art). In 2012 I won one of my most relevant awards, “Foreign Promise” at the Italian International Prize Limen Arte.
Other countries where my work has also been exhibited are Poland, in 2014, at the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts of Łódz; Sweden, 2015, at the 6th International Lithographic Simposium of Tildaholm; and Greece: in 2016 I win the award “Novos Valores” granted by the Diputación of Pontevedra. I then travel to Greece and stay from February until August 2017 first in Athens and later for a residency at the art center “The Lakkos Project”, in Heraclion, where my latest work is shown at an individual exhibition named “Ménades”. I also collaborate in a project promoted by the art center to rehabilitate the city’s shanty towns through art, performing two murals.
As a muralist drawer, I also contribute with a large art piece in Spain in September 2017, at the Ferrol’s Meninas de Canido Festival. As an illustrator, I have drawn for Spanish publishers such as Kalandraka, as well as for the Italian and Spanish music industry.
Multidisciplinary projects: theatrical scenery, music, cinema.
I also work in music, theater and cinema projects. Amongst those are works related to the world of dance and theater as a scenographer, being the most relevant “Pinceladas”, from the Italian and Spanish company “Proyecto Esquina Flamenca”, premiered in Rome in 2014 at the “Festival Roma Semilla Flamenca” held at the Auditorium Parco della Musica.
Currently I am part of two multidisciplinary projects: with “Two Faces”, a band formed by musicians Ismael Berdei (pianist from the A Coruña dance conservatory) and Bruno Couceiro (percussionist), I create large-format drawings live during the group’s performances. I am also a member of the film production company Annaniá, directed by the artist Fernando de France. We are currently in the filming of our next film project, “If”, where I am playing the lead female role as well as collaborating with my drawings, which are of major narrative importance in the story. I also work in the art department, as well as developing everything related with the graphic design of the film and its promotional materials.The film will be released in July 2018.
