Iria is a visual artist. She uses a surreal language to create figurative sculptures of human bodies, anatomy of wild animals, elements of domestic environment and literature icons, as classics of the XIX Century. She loves books as objects, and objects as fetishes. Her creative world -inspired by the magic of antiques “Wunderkammer”- ranks from Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain and Jules Verne.
Iria got some grants as the one from CIEC (International Contemporary Printmaking Center of Betanzos) and has been selected by Antonio López III Cátedra Extraordinaria Ciudad de Albacete. She has also participated in Swab Art Fair 2013 (Barcelona), Room Art Fair (Madrid) and she has had exhibitions in Rome, New York, México DF and Barcelona.
