Ivana Flores (Barcelona, 1974) is a whimsical artist with a diversely realistic side. This difference in perspective is also present in her work and it´s her trademark. She incorporates inmense symbolism throughout her work because she doesnt want to leave out any fragments of imagination from her enormous creative mind.
The fictional caracters in her work are based on her reality, drawing and painting are her languages. Too much fairy tale like as it may seem, they bring viewers like us into believing in this poetic magician. Her footprint is channeled through female characters of young age and eventually undergo transformations as though of that of a Lewis Carroll tale.
Throughout her life she has had an inmesurable passion for art, a primary need for human happiness. Her first steps began in the Born district of Barcelona, exhibiting at La Santa.
For Ivana art is life, it has guided her to know what she wants and how to say it. The artist speaks to us through the eys of her precious characters which stare through windows overlooking wonderlands.
The places where her art transports us is a colorful one but its also a fantastic one, filled with mythological creatures that are symbols of her vast imagination. Her delicate creatures evoke a critical attitude towards the establishments of social structure, they're children who don`t go through an aging process and surely don`t want to assume the responsibilities of a corrupted world. This is the artists imagination on canvas and paper.
