Rebeca Ferrero specialises in painting and printmaking. She holds a PhD in Contemporary Art Research from the University of the Basque Country. She graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca in 2014, with a Master in Painting from the University of the Basque Country in the Faculty of Fine Arts in 2015. She completed part of her academic training as a scholarship holder at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, Italy 2012-2013, where she began to use printmaking and mixed media on canvas in her work.
She has specialised in the production of expanded graphic work on canvas; taking textile art as an influence and training with textile printing courses, such as the one given by the textile artist Virginia Ameztoy (BA in Design, Textile Screen Printing and Decorative Arts at Middlesex University in London) at the Balenciaga Museum, and textile screen printing courses by the artist and teacher at the University of the Basque Country David Arteagoitia.
His current work began to take shape while he was doing his master’s degree in painting, where in his final master’s project he investigated various ways of using printmaking techniques on canvas with a pictorial aspect, always questioning the “rules” of the techniques, their processes and the supposedly suitable supports for each material, which later led him to begin his doctoral thesis with the concern to investigate the alteration of various processes of the techniques and the use of alternative supports for printing.
Currently, his artistic activity makes the pictorial process compatible with the graphic process, as in addition to developing other oil painting projects, each three-dimensional work he produces comes from sketches and pictorial studies.
