Margarita Iribarren Ingelhammar

Born in Argentina (1978). 

Art school studies between 1997-2000 at University Martin Malharro,

Mar del Plata (Buenos Aires). 

Moved to Spain in 2001, where I met my Swedish husband in 2006. 

Live in Gothenburg, Sweden since 2008, where I work full time with my art. 

 

Art and drawing has always been a part of my life, which is why I decided at a very young age to devote myself to painting and illustrating. For me, it's a lot more than just a job or a call, it's a way of living, where creation is necessary for a sense of freedom and realisation. My career as an artist is an ongoing process that is created and shaped by life itself and its challenges. I continue to discover new courses of action that accompanies my own development. The source of my inspiration comes from daily impressions like views, smells, music and life. Through a dialog between shapes, colors and textures, I treat these impressions to give them a physical manifestation through paintings which often strive for a vivid visual expression.
