Laura Basterra

Hometown: Barcelona

Based in: Brussels

Multi-disciplinary Spanish artist Laura Basterra (1979) was born and raised in Barcelona where she graduated with a BA in Fashion Design at the ESDI School of Design at Ramon Llull University in 2005 before going on to complete postgraduate studies in screen printing and pattern-making, amongst other related courses, leading her to a successful career as a fashion designer, with her eponymous label Laura Basterra. Laura participated in an important fashion event for up and coming designers FAD in Barcelona in 2006, 2007 and 2009 and EGO Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week in 2008. As a designer, Basterra’s work received acclaim in publications such as El Pais, El Mundo, VOGUE Spain and internationally.

Basterra’s world has always encompassed a variety of mediums – fashion, writing, painting, illustration and text-based work. As an artist, she is as multi-disciplinary as she is multi-passionate. She is currently in residence at See U, Brussels, Belgium from 2019-2020, where she is working on a series of paintings, drawings, collages and
text works that relate to her daily experience. She has exhibited her works in Brussels.

More About Laura Basterra

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Observing my environment. I process things deeply and I express those ideas when I come to understand what I have lived. Nature, solitude, some people's deep and stunning eyes, people with a lot of inner light... I'm also impulsive, I react emotionally. That I don't enjoy, however, I can sometimes turn that reaction into a nice piece of art.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I have two main processes: one of them is painting from a study. The other one is more spontaneous: I choose a colour that feels right in that specific moment, as well as the size of the brush, and I start painting. These come from a place that I can't control. Sometimes some sort of understanding between my mind, body, emotions and spirit happens and I know the painting I have in front of me is speaking a moment of my truth. It's these moments of my reality that are important to me.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Intense, direct and colourful.

IconUser

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

My brushes, a piece of natural fabric, my iPad and colours!

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Be yourself, be as free as you can, stay grounded and pay attention. Set goals and work towards them. Calm down your demons and enjoy the journey.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

Inspiration is everywhere if you pay attention. I'm a deep observer. I go to nature to find peace.
