I am a visual artist and cultural worker, interested in the relationships between the body and the community. My most recurrent practice is drawing, which emerges on multiple mediums according to my instincts. I explore languages that involve gesture, the body, and the observation of the influence of invisible forces on it.
For years, I have been working and nourishing myself in collective projects in different fields, which has led me to understand artistic creation as a practice of shared knowledge.
I’m moving from Asturias to Barcelona in 2007 to study Fine Arts and later pursue a Master’s in Contemporary Philosophy. In addition to my studies, my experiences have been shaped by countercultural projects and numerous assembly processes: “Jornadas Mutantes,” a festival that was born in 2014 as a result of social demands against the abortion ban in Spain; since 2016, I have been a member of the “Imprenta col·lectiva de Can Batlló,” a space for political action. In 2022, I was part of Rancho, a group involved in collective and experimental curation for the exhibition “Duerme en el accidente que provoca” at the Santa Monica Arts Center.
Currently, I work in project support and production at the artistic center La Escocesa.
My artistic practice has also been influenced by collaborations in various collective projects. I will highlight three due to their significance: “Horriblemente Humano,” a micro-publishing venture for fanzines established in 2012, which took us to fairs and gatherings across the country for four years; “nenazas,” a fanzine, feminist action, and performance group; our pieces were exhibited at Can Felipa, Puerta(Bilbao), and Llucifest; “FLIA,” an independent book fair where I was part of the organizing team for 5 editions.
My most established practice is drawing, and the project that marked its inception was “Un dibujo al día” (A Drawing a Day), during 2015, culminating in a solo exhibition at “Lata de Zinc,” a contracultural space in Oviedo. I have contributed to a large number of personal and collective fanzines, including the comic “La Casa Menguante” (2016), published by
the legendary fanzine publisher “Bombas para desayunar.” My trajectory as a fanzine artist is documented in the collective publication “Fanzine Grrrls” by Monsa Ediciones.
My drawings have been featured in publications, magazines and book covers.
Within the realm of drawing, my practice also extends to ceramics, tattooing, and textile design. In the fIeld of audiovisuals, I worked on the animation for “Oro rojo” (2020), a short documentary that received awards at the International Short Film Festival Berlin 2021, exploring forms of racial oppression in Spanish strawberry fields.
I have participated in several group exhibitions: “La nit del cos” (2019), “Herselves” (2016), “Políticas del suelo” (2019), “Páginas Amigas” (2019), and “Hacer Hueco” (2015). I have also conducted drawing workshops at Tabakalera (Donosti), MACBA (Barcelona), and Las Naves (Valencia).
