  BIO

„Such as a Mirror“ are the works of Switzerland based illustrator Eva Mirror @Eva_mirror, with this originally family name. She was born in Barcelona, and then traveling very young to cities as New York, or living in South America was totally seduced from a magnetic attraction to the Pop Art, Naive or Modernism. Her portrait reinterpretations are with a powerful influence of women‘s beauty in very dynamic style. In Sevilla she completed her studies of Scenography and Graphic Design. Her relationship with these techniques influences the treatment of the portraits that she creates, hence the emotional and ornamental detail along with the use of strong and warm colors.

Taking inspiration from artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol and Judy Chicago, influenced by the way painting and illustrating, Eva works always in different languages but with a very personal and own voice. She has previously painted with canvas and acrylics, and now uses more paper and Digital, but not only because she likes to explore in new tools and materials. 

In the last years the figurative serie – recompilation of Women & Anthropology as: “Redber”, Natives One and “Now.here” makes to her a personal change. 

 – – —–  How we can see the world in the future? 

She studied some years Sociology interested in Culture and Ethnology, even if very fast she saw the desire of creation more than to investigate, her vision is between a mix of both.
