Paula Bonet. Vila-real, 1980.
BSA on Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia completes her formation at the NYU of New York, at the UPC of Santiago de Chile and at Dedalo Arte, Italy.
Until relatively not so long ago her style combined pictorial work of engraving and oil paint. She mastered lithography, silk-screen and woodcut printing at the Taller99 of Santiago de Chile and at Urbino, Italy. However, her impulsive temperament collided with the wait and patience needed on the use of those techniques, and the difficulty of incorporating text fragments accompanying the images, which was needed based on her judgment, made her swap oil paint, copper, wood, to ink pens, watercolors and India ink. As a result a faster and more direct approach was achieved, and those speed and immediacy are demanded features of her most recent oeuvre.
And this quickness it is also applicable to the way her work has spread though the internet: Just like gunpowder. Nowadays she recieves commissions from different places like Mexico, Hong Kong or Paris.
