María Burgaz Biography

María Burgaz

Madrid, Spain, 1970

Established Spanish painter Maria Burgaz works in a figurative style with definite pop influences.

Burgaz received a Fine Arts degree from the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. While still a young painter, she has a substantial resume built by frenetic activity during the past ten years or so. She has hung her canvases in innumerable salons and galleries, always provoking public interest with her extremely personal conception of painting.

Her work has also been recognized by the numerous contests in which she has participated?and often won?and forms part of many public and private collections.

Burgaz?s painting is a color explosion in which she compartmentalizes all types of narrative themes, combining realism with abstraction and decorative motifs. So strong is the imagery in her work that it is difficult not to be caught up in it.
