Description

Este cuadro empezó con unas ganas de hacer un ejercicio diferente, no expresar tanto la luz ni el poder, sino la tristeza, profundidad, el silencio, y la luz que emerge de estos estados.

This painting began with a desire to do a different exercise, not to express so much light or power, but the sadness, depth, silence, and light that emerges from these states.

“I am a painter and despite being born in Barcelona, I consider myself African. My mother was Fang and came from Equatorial Guinea. I arrived in Barcelona aged 12 and was one of the first Black women who stayed to live in the city centre. Through portraits I look for a recognition of the power and strength that emerges from the character in each one of them using colour and brushstrokes in an energetic and visceral way, exploring and drinking their own and shared experiences. I attempt through my work to give a little more dynamism and visibility to this large group which in my country has a clear upward projection but it sadly is still quite silenced. For this, I use pencils, watercolours, acrylics and oil paints, and I love working in large formats."
