For me, art is a lifestyle.
Soraya Güell is a Spanish artist, born in Girona in 1985. She began painting in 2008 when social reality led her to have some free time. She decided to start drawing, starting with family and friends, then she had the feeling that she needed to add colors in her drawings and gradually, some landscapes and interiors with still life.
She is currently working on a new project whose works reflect the sketch of a glamorous and exciting world to get lost. An optimistic way of thinking about how we would like the world and things. Ideal scenes, but practically impossible or difficult to implement. Refers to the idea, ideation or representation of one ideal civilization, fantastic, imaginary and unrealizable, parallel or alternative to the today’s world.
Try playing to unite the continuous actual present and future through illogical reflections with a touch of surreal humor. She enjoys watching the reflections and translating them on the canvas at the same time that transforms them into mode of representation of the ideal.
She loves looking at the little things and observe the details, not as objects but as shapes and colors, while maintaining simplicity in each work, as she believes that excesses can sometimes be a distraction from the essential.
Soraya is currently represented by Mahlstedt Gallery (New York).
