Margarita Iribarren Ingelhammar

“Painting and drawing has always been a part of my life and that is also the reason why I decided very young to dedicate my life to painting and illustration. To me it is much more than just a job or a vocation, it´s rather a way of living where continuously creating is necessary for a feeling of freedom and realization. My trajectory as an artist is a constantly ongoing process that is created and shaped by life with all its erudition. And thanks to my constant effort I keep discovering new ways and approaches that accompany my own development.
 The source to my inspiration comes from daily impressions like views, smells, music and life itself. And through a dialogue between shapes, colours and textures I process these impressions to be able to give them a physical manifestation through images with a strong visual expression.”
