Esther Arias was born in Jaén in 1957. It was her wish to experiment with colour and with the magic of light and shadow that made her venture into the world of painting. She studied marketing in Madrid and Los Angeles but she soon exchanged the figures for paintbrushes and started off experimenting in the world of paints, which is why one could say about her that she is self-taught and that her work is intuitive. She has been working for 15 years with the idea in her mind, that “it is those who look at my paintings who have to adopt them as theirs and invest them with the dreams they inspire”.
Her study is located in a district of artists and artisans, in the Calle Cotoners, 14. She has held exhibitions in Kopenhagen, Brussels,New York,Buenos aires,Berlin .She also has a permanent exhibition in Oslo, Pingving Gallery. Her permanent exhibition is to be found in her study. Esther often holds exhibitions for young artists who are trying to find a space in the world of art. It is not only painting that we can see in her study, we have been able to enjoy music, dance and sculpture as well. She is a member of the Catalan Guild of Art Galleries. Her work is to be seen in New York, Miami, Vicenza, Madrid and Barcelona.
