Isis Navarro is a Catalan artist specialized in collage and mixed media, giving free rein to her creativity in each and every one of her works. To do this, he uses all kinds of cut-outs and materials that manage to express what he feels at all times.
Hello Isis, who are you? How would you define yourself?
I am a sensitive woman who always smiles.
Where were you born? Do you still live there?
I was born in Barcelona. I live here, I love my city, although more and more it comes to mind to go live in a smaller and quieter place. Of course, near the sea.
When did you decide to become an artist?
Being an artist was born with me, but for a long time I ignored it. A few years ago I decided to leave behind my profession as a biologist because I felt that I was dying while I was alive. I had no idea what to do, but it was when I gave myself space to listen to what was inside me, that my need to fill my life with art and dedicate myself to this surfaced.
How would you define your style in one sentence?
Introspective, vital, feminine and delicate.
Your weaknesses? Your strengths?
My strengths; have a very high curiosity and passion to learn new things. Weakness; That curiosity and passion are very volatile and it is difficult to maintain them for a long time towards the same goal.
What would you say makes you different?
What do you find most fascinating about creativity?
The connection with oneself, with the present moment. Forget everything. Focus on something that starts with an idea and evolves, without knowing how, in another direction. It's amazing to see what you're capable of when you stop being rational.
Which of your works do you have a special affection for?
Looking for summer, was the first collage I did and I love it. One day I decided that this collage was never going to sell.
What inspires or influences you when creating? My work is completely subjective. He speaks from the abstraction of what I am, what I live and what I feel. Without a doubt, I also need to nourish myself with the work of other artists, other points of view and ways of creating.
a favorite place

What would you do if you could change the world?
Being children for longer.
Penultimate question… Favorite song?
"Dancing in the moonlight" I wouldn't say it's my favourite, but it always gives me a good vibe and brutal energy.
