(1888 PressRelease) Contemporary artist Bianca Batlle Nguema hosts her first virtual exhibit entitled "Speaking Bodies" on Facebook.
New York, NY - GoodGirlPR would like to introduce Bianca Batlle Nguema, a painter who has often struggled to reconnect with her roots and does so by taking us on her incredible journey through the arts. At a young age, Bianca's mother moved from Africa to Spain in 1967, leaving much of her cultural heritage behind. Bianca uses painting to rediscover her identity and to magnify the beauty of women of African ancestry. Many of her works reflect the journey she continues, in exploring what it means to be a "mixed-race" woman and learning much of her ancestry through her environment. Bianca's works can be found online through her Instagram and website, where she shares her process in studying the Black female body. Bianca's portraiture techniques are bold and refreshing - her use of shadows and light reaching out from the canvas. The saturation of the bright yellows, blues, and browns transfers the same warmth and intimacy she has for all Black women. It has become essential for Bianca, while living in a white society, to convey this appreciation for the characters that fill her paintings through introspection. Through this, she can convey strength, beauty, and resilience in many of her pieces.
Bianca hosted a Virtual Exhibit called "Speaking Bodies" in showcasing her latest works created during the COVID-19 quarantine. This pandemic has dramatically impacted communities in Spain. This event was streamed from Spain at 12 PM ET and 6 PM BCN
About Bianca Batlle Nguema
In 1967, Bianca’s mother left Africa for Spain. She was part of the first generation immigrants that worked in the streets of Barcelona and Andorra. She left her roots behind, struggled to find peace while in the diaspora and died in 2010. Her name was Marina - the mother of Bianca. Although she was African, for reasons, she never told Bianca about her roots. After she died in 2010, Bianca started on a journey, through art, to discover her origins as being mixed race is an essential journey of self-discovery and identity. It is this fantastic journey that she paints today.
