Barbara Linares

illustration of The image portraits a woman who peacefully tastes a bit of the planet in a hostile environment, an aesthetically pleasing figure despite the fact that she is carrying out a destructive action. It is a critical metaphor of our behaviour as a society, a society apparently committed to the goals of sustainable development, but in which we continue to contribute to environmental degradation through acts that often go unnoticed.

Profile

Barbara is a freelance artist specialising in painting and pictorial illustration. Her work is mostly related with the human figure and portraiture in a realistic and colourful style. Her choice of colour palette often includes cool/warm and complementary colour contrasts, obtaining vibrant and aesthetic compositions as a result. His illustration work is mainly digital but developed in a similar way to how he would do it analogically in his paintings, emulating the technique of oil and pastel, so his stroke is usually quite visible in the final artwork. Although her official studies are not related to the creative field, she attended extracurricular art courses during childhood where she explored and learned different painting techniques. With the acquired base and in a self-taught way she develops her current work, reinforcing her skills by attending an art school nowadays in her spare time.
