24 September - 20 November
Born in 1993 in Barcelona, Ana Pallares was fifteen when she discovered graffiti and continued exploring different artistic practices such as painting, illustration and poetry.
Her work reflects on pain, death and other intangible realities which too often occur with little, or incomprehensible, reason. She strives to find and attach new meanings to these realities hoping to present them in a healthier more manageable way: ‘ultimately aiming to turn destructive feelings into constructive action‘.
Interested in ambiguity as it plays with the surprise effect, she finds great joy painting the deformed and weird faces of her works with rainbow colours. ‘People feel lost while watching them whereas I feel I could not have expressed the tragicomedy of life in a better way‘.
