Eva Poyato (Eva) was born in Spain in 1972 and graduated from the University of San Carlos with a master’s degree in graphic arts. She specializes in the use of materials such as wood, Yakuza, hand-made paper, metals, modeling clay, collage, ceramics, etc., and works with dexterous hands.
In her studio, the tables are always filled with paper, fabric, paste, wood, branches, wires, hooks, seeds, all kinds of elements, and countless small objects shaped on paper, canvas or sculpture. Compared to the chaotic tabletop, her artworks are mainly clean and orderly, like a kind of minimalism, clean and smooth images, without any extra burden or weight to the viewer. Eva brings us works like fairy tales, in her eyes, everything in the world seems to be simplified into poetry.
