I am Eva Maria Espejo aka Eva Mirror a Visual Artist and Designer based since 2014 in Switzerland. I was born in Barcelona 1972 and then lived in several places as Madrid, Sevilla, Brighton, Buenos Aires, Torino and Berlin, I started to study Sociology interested in art, cultures and ethnology but soon I saw the desire of creation by means of investigation.
My paintings and Illustration are mostly animals and portraits, I listen once that I work in a kind of mix between Pop, Surrealism, Naive Art, Psychedelic and Avant-garde.
As Digital Artist I am working since 2010 and in graphic design I made experience in Magazines, Concepts, Art Direction and Illustration.
I’ve taught Art for Primary School and Secondary Elementary as complementary activity using personal tools for the creative knowledge and development.
