this is me
Hi there! Here is Mele. I was born in Cádiz, the Southest South of Spain, in 1986. And, as far as I can remember, I was always surrounded by colouring pencils, books, pens, watercolours, papers and everything which had to do with getting dirty and leave the imagination fly far away,
When I was seventeen, I left my hometown and moved to Madrid, where I studied Fine Arts in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, finishing in 2010 and achieving with this one of my dreams.
During the academic year 2008/09 I lived, studied, learnt and enjoyed in Hildesheim, a small city in the middle of Germany, where I specialised in Design by the "HAWK, Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenchaft und Kunst".
After the years in Madrid, we decided to change the scene and this is how I ended up in Berlin, amazing city where I live and work, to where I came searching for new adventures and where I found a future full of unexpected surprises.
Here is where I fixed my current style: drawings which moves on the surface, lines which interweave with each other, creating organic forms with no beginning and no end. Elements which come from the nature, but don't find the their place attached to the earth.
Abstract thoughts which mix the curves and the straight, the balance and asymmetry, the empty space and the deep black. Drawings with a spotless white or moving without end in an ocean of intense colour.
My drawings are floating elements in surrealist landscapes, they are the shapes which creates themselves if I leave my hand and my heart work together in unison.
They are my language and my way to tell the world that this is what I do the best.
