© Yolanda Dorda
Born in Barcelona,
grew up in A Coruña. She has always been linked, in one way or another, to art, which led her to begin her artistic studies at the Pablo Picasso School of Art, opting for sculpture as a specialization. It was in London that painting became her main means of expression. It was there that she came into contact with English painters and expressionism, and their influence was clear in her works. In her canvases you can appreciate a certain cosmopolitanism that comes from her English experience, but also from her time in New York, Barcelona and Slovenia, connecting with the artistic environment of these cities. Since its inception, in addition to her artistic residencies, Dorda has participated in numerous meetings of artists, being selected for workshops organized by the MACUF, and also by the CIEC Foundation. Furthermore, she has won numerous awards in many art competitions, and her work can be found in some important collections and institutions. During the last decade her works have been part of publications and individual and collective exhibitions all over the country. The expressive force of her brushstrokes, her digital collages and the sexual and feminine themes of her work, make her one of the most recognized artists on a national level. She has been featured in the latest editions of Art Madrid, in the contest Mujeres Mirando Mujeres,and since 2018 she has collaborated monthly with the German edition of the prestigious magazine Vogue with paintings in which female sexuality is exhibited without taboos.
