Interview to Katia Muñoz

·When did you start in the art world?

 

Since I was very young. Since I have memories of paint.

At the age of 8 I entered the school of Fine Arts in Peru, with people older than me.

In the past I dedicated myself to photography and I have been trying other things

 

·How long have you been in Barcelona?

 

Since 2006.

 

·What does the title of your exhibition “Katia Muñoz- From the abstraction'' mean?


 

I consider myself an abstract artist basically, although from time to time, I paint pictures that include figurative elements, but they are minimal.

 

It is from abstraction that I want to express my inner world, create totally new and unique spaces and geographic coordinates in which I want to live, which I dream of.


 

·What do you think is your source of inspiration?

 

I think that my main motivation is colors, my inspiration comes from the search for dialogue between the fusion of impossible colors, since I have the challenge of achieving harmony by working with complementary colors.


 

·So how would you define your art?

 

My art is abstract expressionist, since I work without a sketch, the first spots are gestural, and later I compose with technique and balance between shape and color.


 

·Are the series presented in Port Gallery independent works or are they linked?

 

There is a connection between paintings that manifests itself in the form of a visual script where you can appreciate the process of the entire time of evolution, obviously each painting contains a different feeling and energy impregnated in its creation process.

 

·What other artists inspire or mark you?

 

Antoni Tàpies and Mark Rothko.
