Lina Martín Calvo was born in Zaragoza, Spain.
Since she moved to Paris in 1997, she developped at the same time with her professional career, an artistic career at the Ateliers des Beaux Arts in Paris, with Rémy Aron, Antonio Ros and Jacques Vigot.
Since then, Lina Martin Calvo has been exhibiting regularly in Spain and France.
She claims her painting as an act of life using abstraction to translate emotions and awaken those of the viewer.
A space where the imagination is revealed by subtle compositions of light, shapes and colors. Her sensitivity, her emotions and her feelings are revealed by releasing his own form of expression allowing the spectator to project himself into his world and his emotions.
Her painting has the influence of her Spanish culture, “it provokes a feeling of primitive freshness and measured vital joy.”
Lina Martín Calvo accumulates energy, life and feelings, then arises the need, compelling to release them on the canvas, listening to herself intuition.
Lina Martín Calvo’s painting is an intimate journey in the light and harmony of colors. It is a return to Spain through his eyes. His motto “color has become my freedom”.
