Abril Espinoza

Born in 1979, Abril Espinoza grew up in the Mexican countryside in Bosques del Lago, a region of the State of Mexico, surrounded by forests and a beautiful lake. “I was small, I was introverted, and I loved to draw for hours and hours,” recalls the young woman. Her first contact with art was at the age of 12, with the discovery of the works of Remedios Varo, an artist who still inspires her today, and the programmes of Bob Ross, a television host who presented an internationally broadcasted show in the 80s called “The Joy of painting”.

Over the years, she stopped drawing in order to concentrate on mechanical engineering. In 1999, during the Christmas holidays, her grandfather gave her a 100 pesos coin (€4.50), which she decided to invest in her first painting materials. Armed with paintbrushes, canvases and tubes, she set off at the age of 20 on a creative adventure all whilst pursuing a professional career in the automotive industry and in industry in general.

At the age of 27, she married a man who understands her need to design. Four years later, she began her studies in a small art academy: “I want other eyes to see what is important to me: to study and develop my work, experiment with different materials, techniques and styles, the freedom of the spatula and the precision of the brush, combining oil and gold leaf. Art is a mixture of strength and delicacy, freedom and colour…”
