Marina Anaya

Marina (b. PALENCIA, SPAIN, 1972) studied a variety of artistic mediums, with emphasis on printmaking and painting, and earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Cuenca, Spain, in 1996. She was granted the same year by the AECI (Spanish Agency for International Cooperation) in Florianopolis, Brazil, extending her practice by teaching and researching in the field of Plastic Arts while working on her own works and projects. She attended her Doctorate degree courses in La Habana, Cuba, between 1996 and 1999, which influenced her work with a passion for vivid characters and colors.

In 1998 she moved to Madrid, Spain, where she lives and works. Marina is passionate about promoting printmaking as an art form, exploring new ways to enrich this technique and being very concerned about the environment, using non-toxic products to this end. She has been involved in a wide variety of individual and collective exhibitions, not only in Spanish galleries she works with regularly but also in foreign cities such as Shanghai and Amsterdam. ARTMADRID and STAMPA are other important art fairs which endorse her works. Apart from printmaking, painting, and sculpture, she is also devoted to other related fields such as design and illustration.
