A popular Spanish artist from Madrid, Blanca Camunas de Castro was influenced by the post-war COBRA group and by artists such as Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky and Pablo Picasso. Her abstract and semi-abstract paintings use vibrant colours and textures to create a strong sense of movement and energy. Taking to heart the tenets of the Abstract Expressionists, Blanca’s paintings reflect the vivacity and passion of the artist herself. The bold colours, strong brushwork and wondrous compositions combine to create vibrant paintings that convey Blanca’s vision of modern life.
Blanca was born in Madrid and graduated in Art from the University of Valencia. She now lives and works in Madrid.
She has held extensive exhibitions abroad including North of Latin America, New York, Florence, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. In early 2000’s, Blanca lived in Singapore with her diplomat husband. The beauty of Nature and especially tropical flowers fascinated Blanca. She held a solo exhibition at Galerie Belvedere Singapore in 2004 at which she received much acclaim.
