Candela Paniagua Olavide
Born in Madrid, Spain, in 1986. As a child, she already had artistic qualities and interests. Always motivated by her (musician) parents, she studied Fine Arts in Madrid. She then spent a few months in Morocco, where her parents lived for a few years. After that, she moved to Mojácar (Southern Spain), a small village near the sea, surrounded by nature and home to her family residence. Such factors had a deep influence in the artist who, shortly after, moved to Berlin (Germany) where she now resides.
Candela covers various artistic fields such as drawing, painting, sculpture and design, through which she aims to create expressive images. One of her premises is generating textures and one of her most appreciated materials is silk paper, in which she finds the delicacy and malleability needed to create a base or for a visually strong finish.
