MARU CAAMAÑO

She was born in Morocco to a Spanish family, and spent most of her childhood and youth there. When her family returned to Spain, she graduated in Biology and after completing her PhD she became a professor in Plant Biotechnology. A few years later she started to study drawing and painting in the art studio of B. Blanco Brodard, where she stayed for 5 years. During the following years she continued painting, and in 2014 she began to take engraving classes which allowed her to explore various techniques such as dry point, etching, aquatint or mezzotint. The discovery of the monotype technique in 2015 opened up a more free way of expressing her art. She is currently dedicated to monotypes and uses new techniques full of colour that give her an innovative style, using oil inks on boards that she then prints on different types of paper. 

Since 2015 the artist has held several solo and collective exhibitions in Spain (Santiago de Compostela in 2016 and 2019, and Madrid in 2017 and 2018), Italy (Art Fair of Milan in 2017), France (solo exhibitions at Les Amis des Arts Art Gallery in Aix-en-Provence, in 2018 and 2019), and the UK (collective exhibition of the Gaudí Art Gallery in 2018 at the Athenaeum Hotel in Mayfair, London).
