Fatima de Juan

Fátima de Juan (Palma de Mallorca, 1984) is an artist based in Mallorca. Her first contact with the world of painting was through graffiti as a teenager under the alias “Xena”, years later she studied illustration at the school of arts and crafts in Palma and graphic design in Madrid.

 

The woman is a constant in all her personal work; a strong woman, with large arms, exuberant features and claws, a reflection of an attitude that exudes femininity, sweetness and brute strength. Nature, the exotic, the primitive, the naive, the erotic, the tropical, fantasy and magic coexist in her personal universe through vivid colours and velvety textures that give her an almost real and naïve dimension at the same time. Ancestral elements such as fruits, pitchers, stones, swords... coexist with more “aesthetic”, street and futuristic elements that make up the artist’s dreamlike imaginary, full of contrasts and sweetly aggressive self-portraits.

 

Recent exhibitions have taken place at venues such as L21 Gallery, Palma de Mallorca (2021); TILDE, Amsterdam (2021) and Breach, Miami (2021).
