Beatriz Lorenzo Iñigo is a visual artist based in Madrid. Her work focuses on the language of painting in which she uses a wide variety of techniques and materials. In 2012 she obtained a Master’s degree in Digital Arts from the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), and previously a bachelor’s degree in both Fine Arts (2010) and Art History (2005).
Her work process is based on intuition, conforming, analysis, and acknowledgment of sociological and emotional concepts. Her process starts with the observation of the world around her, then she memorizes situations and objects that catch her eye. Lastly, these elements are integrated into her paintings leaving a trace of the different processes a painting goes through, allowing different emotions to be distinguishable through the paint.
The concept of identity has been a prominent topic in her latest works. In her compositions, the human figure frequently appears adorned with symbolic elements such as masks, representing the freedom of the individual against the dominant culture.
During her residency at GlogauAIR Lorenzo Iñigo started focusing on the role that the environment plays in shaping our identities. She is currently working with everyday objects of the city of Berlin such as transport tickets, posters, and stickers which she collects from the street. The result is a series of paintings with an aesthetic that reflects the neighborhood of Kreuzberg.
