Piluca tells us about herself with a simple Q&A
Q1 Who is Piluca?
Born in Madrid, Piluca came to London in the 1990’s and has lived in Brixton ever since. She did a two-year Art & Design course at Vauxhall College and a BA Hons degree in Fine Art at Kingston University and was nominated finalist in the Arts category for the Wintrade International Awards 2018.
A busy life as mother of two children didn’t stop the artist not only to become a published illustrator, but also to take part in numerous successful art shows and direct many local events and community enterprises in Brixton.
During Covid, Piluca worked relentlessly on an animation project and is now fully immersed into her painting and sculpting practice.
Q2 Where do you get your inspiration?
I have always considered a precious gift to be alive. Anything that stirs my emotions will capture my imagination and propel my creativity. Having the opportunity to contribute to the miracle of life by creating something that never existed before, that will connect to and inspire others, and that could potentially have a positive impact in the world, is undoubtedly my biggest inspiration.
Q3 Did you have any formal training?
Two-year Art & Design course at Vauxhall College and a BA Hons degree in Fine Art at Kingston University.
Q4 What artists inspire you?
Picasso, Barbara Kruger, Banksy, Dali, Marlene Dumas, Warhol, Ai Weiwei, Cindy Sherman
Q5 What does Sentiment mean to you?
I understand sentiment as a feeling that carries an emotion within it. I also believe that emotions are direct expressions from our soul and the core the planet’s interconnectedness. Therefore, sentiment is an intrinsic part of life that not only prompts creation but also keeps the world and all within it connected.
