SHORT BIO . CURRICULUM VITAE

Nubia Landell, born in Durango, Mexico, started painting professionally in 1996, driven by a strong interest in the exploration of colour.  This lead the artist, in 2003, on a journey of discovery, looking for pigments in Pashupatinath – Nepal, Singapore and Thailand.  Later on, Nubia Landell, made extensive use of a variety of techniques such as graphics, photography, collage and mosaic.  Frequent themes, explored by the artist are: landscapes, nature and the human form. With the passing of time, images tended to become less representational in her work.

The main driving force behind Nubia Landell’s creativity and all that she does, is the way she uses her painter’s eye combined with a developing concept of layering.  Working with layers, allows the artist to develop multi faceted images, while the colour builds itself, creating perspective from which the final art work slowly emerges. 

During the genesis of the creative act, Nubia Landell absorbs elements from whichever sentiment, idea or vision she wishes to express, translating and synthesising them through her artistic language. 

Her work has been exhibited in France, Germany, Latvia, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. She is currently co-founder of Open to Printmakers Studio, in Turin, Italy.
