She studied illustration at Escola Massana in Barcelona and learnt classic painting techniques working as an apprentice at Taller de Escenografía Castells Planas in St. Agnès de Malanyanes (near Barcelona). There she worked with the whole team on many extra-large format backdrops for opera and theatre companies from all over Europe and the rest of the world (Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Sydney, ...)
She has published the illustrated book "El drac de l'estany" with Ediciones Baula.
Cinta currently works as a freelance illustrator for advertising agencies and other companies (Barcelona, â€‹â€‹New Jersey, Australia) and in many personal projects.
"I do not remember the last time I left home without a notebook to draw what I see, notebooks where I try to reflect the complexity of human relationships from different perspectives.
I never wanted to commit to a single style, even if that's the common thing to do: each new project, painting, illustration, client, idea... is thoroughly analysed and after that process, what should be told and how it should be told will arise."
Opening: Wednesday, April 8th at 20.00h
With this work, the artist wants to show that we live in one world, but we live in it in very different ways, playing with everyday objects and spaces, placed in impossible ways to express that many times, the inner dimension of each one of us does not match the mental structures of those around us.
The architectural space, day-to-day objects, are part of a metaphor of how difficult is to fit everything that shapes our daily space: our relationships, work, ambitions and dreams...
The technique that Cinta uses helps the viewer to recognise the quotidian space that we all inhabit, assisting them to understand the ordered maze that is this proposal.
The exhibition is completed by three mirrors that the viewer can use to discover the hidden worlds in each work. (A mirror placed horizontally inverts reality).
"Gravitant" is a living exhibition: the paintings will be rotated each week, showing all possible orientations, giving the opportunity to each sub-world to be the protagonist.
