Artist Bio

A black and white portrait of featured artist, Florencia Magallanes

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1989, Florencia Magallanes is the youngest child of three, from a middle-class family living in the locality of Burzaco. While art was not an inherent trait of her family, Florencia’s artistic interests began at a young age and she was encouraged and motivated by her parents to express her curious spirit of exploration.

During her teenage years, music and film fed her student days as she gradually found her voice in the artistic languages. She decided to pursue a career in the arts after completing her secondary education. Almost by chance, she opted for visual arts.

Florencia studied at the Escuela Municipal de Artes Visuales de Lomas de Zamora, graduating in 2014 with the titles of Professor in Visual Arts and Professor of Painting. During her formative years she participated in group exhibitions locally, in small cultural centres and indie design-fairs.

In 2015 she moved to Spain, where she worked in several projects including photography, video art, digital drawings and paintings. Florencia’s work is characterised by its expressive use of colour and texture; focusing on themes of human emotions and the subconscious mind in a very unique and highly harmonised way. Now living in London, Florencia continues her training and remains devoted fully to her art. Her work has been exhibited in Argentina, Spain, Netherlands, Germany and the UK.
