Lídia Masllorens, born in 1967 in Caldes de Malavella, is a prominent Spanish painter. She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in 1991, specializing in painting, photography, sculpture, and printmaking. Since then, she has regularly exhibited her work across Spain.

 

Masllorens' art has evolved to focus on close-up portraits of human faces, always revealing the most intimate emotions. This evolution is evident in her various exhibitions in Girona and Barcelona, as well as in art fairs in Paris and Brussels.

 

Her current project aims to create an archetypal portrait of the early 21st century. Her large-scale works are characterized by a strong presence, dynamism, and vitality. These portraits are painted with black acrylic on paper using a subtractive technique that involves removing color with water and bleach, rather than layering it. This method allows for a unique color palette ranging from pink to white and from black to gray.

 

Masllorens' brushstrokes are brisk and rapid, often leading to many losses and failures due to the destructive nature of bleach and the unpredictable behavior of water. She embraces her unique approach to watercolor, allowing the paper to absorb water, warp, and fold, letting the water flow across the canvas, degrade the paint, and crumble her brushstrokes under the bleach.
