Aintzane Martinez de Luna was born and works in Bilbao (Basque Country). The artistic career of Luna has made her develop different professional aspects in the field of graphic design, without leaving her passion for painting.
Currently, she paints portraits in oils, explores new digital techniques in order to apply them to the portraits and enters into different disciplines. The artist has always had the human figure and portraits as foundation of her work. Nowadays Lunas work is an evolution -the portrait keeps being her main aim-, but the rest of the items she works with are vital expressions of her influences along these last years: art in the internet, new technologies, manga, music...
The work developed in the past three years is a free project with many styles, techniques and forms of representation. Although the portraits are the thread of her work and the most important part of her plastic and visual work, the artist explores different identities and territories, borrowing the comic language, pop culture and the History of Art.
Lunas works are embodied by different means, such as oil painting, digital art, ceramics or textiles. The origin of her work can be found in her personal experiences, mass media, pictures from books, magazines or the internet, music... after all, in situations that belong to her own life.
