BIO

Begoña Lafuente, (Spain, 1969) is a pictorial, graphic and multimedia artist; Currently, he develops her main creations from her studio by the North Sea - The Netherlands.

Her career is based on its roots in graphic design developed in Madrid at the beginning of the 90s, at a key moment for this discipline, when it reached the range of expression art inside and outside the field of corporate image in Spain.

Begoña intertwines her classical and artistic learning as a graduate in Fine Arts with the latest trends in representation in a constant research work and expands her experience as a graphic designer, art director and illustrator for different companies in corporate identity and advertising.

In 2009 she moves her residence to the Netherlands. Here she interacts with local and international artists from different fields and integrates into her art a new reality that she fuses in her pieces with cuttings from the Spanish school. She plays with different techniques like painting, collage, drawing, photography, scans and monoprints.

The human being as a symbol of expression is a constant in her art; she creates an emotional and visual tension through the use of thematic contrasts, colour opposites, and biological forms against geometric shapes, all representations of a constantly changing nature.

Her portfolio also incorporates recognizable forms of the great masters of art history from a contemporary perspective.

She often participates in local and international art fairs and exhibitions and her work can be found in private collections throughout Europe and in the United States of America.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“I explore the essence of ART: I am intrigued by the motifs of the works that endure over time, and those that fall into oblivion.

I live art as a timeless conversation where not everything is said, where the essential is diluted in a whisper.

As any observer in a museum I wonder-The meanings that I do not find, are at the same time, the ones that initially confuse me, arouse my interest and in the end enrich me with the discovery. The experience makes the piece always accompany me because in a certain way I become an artist also of that apparently unfinished art.

That is what I finally intend when I create my art: I want you to be an active part of my living work.

The meaning behind my art will be a "just for your eyes" and is left in your hands. So what do you want to contemplate?
