Tres Ases Artist (Almudena Angoso) born in Valencia, Spain, on 5 of April of 1989. Painting has been part of her life since she was very young, her grandma was a painter and she shared with her the love for art.
When she was eighteen years old she moved to Barcelona (Spain), to study Fine Arts at Barcelona University. There she got involved with other artistic influences and inspirations and she started to define her way as an artist.After four years she moved to Singapore to work as an artistic events manager and also as an artist. She spent two years creating her new line of portraits in which she will be working for the next years. Africa was always an inspiration for the artist so many of her portraits were based in African people and ethnic cultures, working with oil painting and looking to arrive at the limit of the expression through the realism.After living in Singapore she moved to Menorca (Spain) where she established her art studio. She was working there, showing her art in some exhibitions, travelling to Africa sometimes to live, to work as a volunteer for some months and get new inspirations. After six years in Menorca island, she moved to Dubai in January 2019, where she is living now and working for more and new unusual artworks in her studio.
The work I have been dedicating for the past four years was born curiously from a moment in my life when I felt that the environment in which I found myself lacked soul. I looked for it in the streets, in the people, in a cold and unchanging day today.
And then one day I took back the brushes and began to emerge those gazes of other ethnicities and cultures, loaded with stories and lives. They appeared to fill my soul with my present, to ask questions, to disturb me, to provoke me and to continue creating characters that through a look they knew how to answer me.
I work with oil painting, acrylic and plaster to create textures on the canvas. My priority is to transmit with the expression of my portraits through realism and the language of colours, that is a big part of that expression that I look for, alive and vibrant, working with different techniques between oil and mixed technique. Although I have created different series, such as Africanism (based on portraits of Africa) Anthropo Morphosis (paradigms of the human being), The lightness of Being (Thoughts and feelings in relation with time) or Holi Day (Colors and expressions of India) I over-titled all of them as 'Portraits of the soul' because in their variations they represent the expression of the individual as an ancestral and recondite part of human.
An Arab proverb says that anyone who does not understand a look will not understand a long explanation. Gaze is the window of the soul through which you can guess universes. And the eyes always speak when words are missing.
My portraits are an invitation to the unique perception of each one, but if I intend something with them is to suggest something more than an inert face. To be looked at when looking and to forget about judgments for once, just letting go.
Allow yourself the luxury of feeling a soul, yours.
