Ana Benavides is a London-based artist studying her masters in Painting at the Royal College of Art. She is constantly experimenting and creating works with emotional, spiritual and energetic intensity. Being born and raised in Mexico, biodiversity has been part of her life. She is deeply inspired by nature and constantly translating the energy and emotion when in these magical places. Her compositions are created through gestural brush marks, using her body, and are intuitively constructed and emotionally charged. She uses a free setting process to capture and materialize the intensity and feelings she experiments with in her daily life. The physical texture is also an important part of her practice as it enables her to evoke a primal emotional response and to translate the atmosphere of certain scenes.
