Meet the Artist
Iria is a sculptor, illustrator and printmaker. She works on surreal projects inspired by lysergic pop that range from terrible to irresistible, from hallucination to tale. She creates figurative sculptures by assembling various materials, textures and elements like human bodies, anatomy of wild animals, nature and literature icons. Her creative world is inspired by the magic of “Wunderkammer” and writings by Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain and Jules Verne. The charm carries through in her rural studio-house which is a restored century-old house close to forests in north west coast of Galicia. Our favorite however is her pet donkey, Luca!
