About Kora Moya Rojo

Kora Moya-Rojo (1993) is a Spanish visual artist based in London. She was born in Cartagena (Spain) and attended the University of Fine Arts in Murcia (Spain). After graduating she moved to London, where she resides at the moment. In 2016 she collaborated with the English company Winsor & Newton for the campaign “Alchemy & Artistry”, creating the artwork for the promotional campaign and distribution. Kora has already exhibited her works in various locations around Spain and the United Kingdom.

Inspired by Female Surrealism and Figurative art, her style is a combination of vibrant colours, symbolism and disturbing scenes that represent dreamlike situations. Her work is also autobiographical, relying on nostalgia and memories from her childhood and teenage years. The analysis of these memories leads her to face a stage of realisation in which these past moments now have a different meaning. There is an encounter between “the past self” and “the present self”, in which certain traumas or experiences are revealed.
