General Coordinator / Artistic mediation
Degree in fine arts. I discovered that Art could be transformed into a tool of social transformation. And how important was creativity beyond the Artistic world.

Plastic artist who works mainly painting. The main work is developed in the workshop on canvas, although it is occasionally extended to the exterior in the form of murals in which he synthesizes his pictorial world. He works in the field of abstraction and his work revolves around the metapintura. He’s looking for technological references from digital culture and the screen to take them to the canvas, where appear suggestive compositions narrating a diverse reality where aspects of the microcosm and others coming from the circuits of the machine coexist.

Later I continued my training with a master’s degree in international cooperation that motivated me to continue traveling and exploring the potential of artistic creation to create a positive impact on society.

Aida aka mirahaciaatras
I consider photography, documentation and dissemination of urban art and graffiti an important pillar in the history of current art and for that reason I have been documenting works of art for years in the street both in my travels in Europe and in my daily life in Asturias. . You can find a real work of art walking among rubble in an abandoned building, looking back on your usual walk around the neighborhood, discovering a new destination on the next trip or even walking up the mountain. I think there is a lot of art out there to discover and my passion is to admire it and share it with others. You just have to know how to look 🙂
