    About the artist

    Susana is born in Leon in 1970. She graduated in Fine Arts (Painting) from the University of Salamanca in 1993. Since 1994 she has shared her time between her job as an arts teacher and her artistic and music creations. She currently lives in Bilbao.

    Susana F’s output is small but incredibly varied, and her works are now included in numerous important art collections. Her early work was included in various publications during the 90’s, when the artist first developed her artistic career. According to critic J. Hernando Carrasco, Susana F’s pictorial style can be classified as ‘NeoPop’ and belongs to a group of Spanish and European artists whose work references Abstract Expressionism, pop and literature.

    For Susana painting is not a hobby. It is a need, a drive with no commercial imperative. Her previous work reveals a more expressionistic style, in which she followed her feelings, her intuition. Later she became more structural and abandoned references to mass culture to dig into the composition of organic rhythms, in contradiction with the pictorial plane. Now she is experimenting with different linear rhythms, searching for balance in verticality using lines, vibrant strokes and right angles. “I look back with nostalgia, introducing chromatic ranges used in the backgrounds of comics by drawer Ibáñez, as well as some graphic element from his comics”
