About Belen Sambucety

Spanish artist from Valladolid living in Madrid.

Since my childhood, I have always been attracted by color, drawing, shapes and especially, how I could convey ideas coordinating all these elements. I used to spend hours drawing characters from comic strip, cartoon, famous portraits and anything that caught my attention, my eye.

Time went by and I continue developing this skill by taking private lessons until I decided to study Fine Arts. During my five years as a student the most enriching experience was learning from other students with similar interests, but exploring different ways to express it.

My unstoppable curiosity brought me to move around since I was a student. While I was studying my career in Fine Arts, three cities embraced me; Seville, Salamanca and Milan. When I graduated, I decided to start my adventure to look for my first job in in Liverpool.

Since I arrived in UK, passed three years traveling and working in the country, till I managed to achieve my mecca, London, the main city for art and culture. London gave me the opportunity to develop myself as an artist.

My paintings are a reflection of my internal world, my joy and ways to face life. They are colorful paintings but with striking strokes that emerge from my strong personality. Throughout the color is possible to appreciate the influences and tastes from other historic and artistic periods from the past, especially the impressionism and expressionism. The strong contrast of color allow me to shape the figures and the space to achieve the desire harmony.

The themes of my artwork is focus mainly on people and the water. The figure let me get into the soul of the character, look into their feelings and expressions until is depicted on the canvas. On the other hand, I have been always fascinated by the water even before I grab the brushes. Analyze how the light split up into the water, the reflection translated in a multitude of colors, the movement and the contrasts that produces.

Education

I studied Fine Art between the universities of Seville and Salamanca in Spain, and the last year in MIlan, Italy.
