Melissa Larrañaga is a well-known artist with a long international career that has chosen nature as her protagonist. Her works, be them drawings or paintings of medium and large format, depict landscapes of colourful vegetation inhabited by flowers, leaves and trees. The aesthetic result offers works of a delicate beauty that reconquer the gray urban space. Despite her careful technique and realism, Larranaga’s artwork is not intended to be naturalistic, but works from memory and intuition. Her unmistakable style, created with a slow and constant rhythm, invites to an unhurried contemplation as a counterpoint to the rush of contemporary life.
