Daughter of a painter, Nuria Riaza‘s childhood, as every nineties teenager’s, has been permeated with fantastical images of pop culture classics like Beetlejuice and The Addams Family. Today, through the blue ink of her ballpoint pen, the Spanish artist is composing a cabinet of curiosities, mixing the creepy and the beautiful. Riaza’s protagonists seems resurrected from an old era, like they were directly taken from these old disturbing family portraits, that she allies with even more archaic objects. And it results in a catching harmony.
