Elena Gual Baquera
Wishing to develop my passion for Art, I chose to move to the UK from Spain in order to be able to attend a more creative course at school.
In 2016 I graduated from the "Florence Academy of Art" where I completed a three year degree in academic drawing and painting.
Building on the techniques I learned there, I have worked to develop my own style, striving to encompass the basic tenets of academic work and classic painters. I attempt to translate their understanding of anatomy, composition and light using my own approach.
As a self-taught photographer, I explore the connection between photography and paintings. I create paintings from my own photographs, yet there are also instances where I believe that a photograph cannot be improved and should be left as such.
I currently live in London and continue to develop my work whilst also accepting commissions.
