My artwork reflects my journey of self-discovery- an adventure of the soul. The inspiration for my creations always stems from within, giving my imagination the freedom to conjure up landscapes that only exist in my mind. It's like navigating an endless river without a clear destination in sight. Since 2000, I have been deeply committed to painting as a means of expression and reflection, devoting a significant part of my life to this passion.
My art offers a glimpse into an alternate world where my creations come to life, inviting viewers to explore, dream, and contemplate. My intention is to encourage people to think deeply and question the rationality of modern society through my art. How my work is interpreted depends entirely on the observer's mood and perception.

More About Helena Revuelta
Describe your creative process.
I wake up at 5:45. I always do an hour and a half of kata training and exercise in the gym because I also trained in martial arts from a very young age. A good physical workout gets me focused on the day ahead. I try to be ready around 8:30 to take full advantage of the daylight. Artificial light is impossible for me because I work exclusively in oil. I must also say that music is an indispensable part of my routine and always accompanies me. Music helps me disconnect and concentrate fully on painting.
What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
That I shouldn’t dedicate myself to painting because being a woman I wouldn’t have many opportunities. I took that precisely as a challenge. I am a tenacious person with a lot of willpower, but also tremendously obsessive and prone to melancholy. Social life bores me, it doesn't suit me. Creating is my lifeline. And luckily, I realised this in time
