Lídia Masllorens was born in 1967 in Caldes de Malavella and graduated in Fine Arts at Barcelona University in 1991. Lídia Masllorens is a Spanish painter who was exhibited regularly in Spain since 1991.
Lídia Masllorens followed her education at BA in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in the specialty of painting (1991) and also specialized in photography, sculpture and engraving.
Her work has evolved towards closeup human faces, always revealing the most intimate emotions. This process has been reflected in the different exhibitions held so far in Girona and Barcelona, and in different art fairs in Paris and Brussels.
Her current project is to create an archetypal portrait of the early twenty-first century. Her works of large size have a strong presence and exude dynamism and vitality. The portraits are painted with black acrylic on paper, a work of colour withdrawal, using water and bleach, and not of layering thus using a subtractive technique, rather than additive.This technique allows for the beautiful colour palette that sets her work apart; with shades from pink to white and from black to grey.
Lídia’s strokes are sharp and quick, which causes many losses and failures when paired with the destructive nature of bleach and the unpredictable behaviour of water. Lídia embraces her unique spin on the watercolour technique. She wants the paper to suck up the water so it can warp and bend, the water to run down the canvas, the paint to degrade and her strokes to crumble under the bleach.
