Nuria Rabanillo-de la Fuente
Nuria Rabanillo-de la Fuente was born in Zamora, Spain and moved to New York in 2008. Presently, she lives and works in the Upper West Side. Before moving to the United States, she studied at Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, Italy for one year (receiving a grant for the young professional Master of Design from Ministry of Industry of the Board of Castile) and later graduated in 1991 from C / Marqués de Cubas Madrid, Spain with a BA in Applied Arts and Crafts. Since childhood, she focused on painting. After conquering global giants, she decided to go to New York City to better project her work as well as to reach a greater audience.
Rabanillo works in mixed media: acrylic, charcoal, oil, watercolor and wax. Her artwork attempts to render a balance between abstraction and figuration—evident in her exploration of the distorted and hidden face that is depicted in current works. Although her works are mainly painting based, Rabanillo expresses a passion for art with photography, sculpture and digital art. Without a boundary, she searches for any artistic discipline that allows her to display her creativity and most-importantly technical capacity.
While exhibiting at international galleries, museums and other institutions, she has received awards such as Diego de Losada-Assocition, Diego de Losada, Award in 2008 for painting. Moreover, her works have been made an acquisition in a number of private contemporary art collections. Right now she divides her time between her painting and the creation of a global project, in which she portrays an abstracted human face reminding us how similar and different humans are.
