Designer at Anula Mixtura Logos, posters, murals, commissions, painting, illustration, graphic and web design, audiovisual projects. BIO: Ana Torralba Loyo was born in Santander in 1987. She later moved to Madrid where she joined the Faculty of Fine Arts. Her interest for photography and video began to take shape already in the University of Vigo, period in which she worked with image, creating metaphors of everyday’s life. In her last year of University, Ana attended the Anotati Scholi Kalon Tehnon in Athens where she created illustrations and collages related to the theme of home life and the everyday. Nowadays the artist works around this same topic, focusing in the representation of formal and symbolical relationships between the subject, the object and the context. “When I was a little girl I created a habit when waiting: browsing all sorts of magazines. Since there is a lot of waiting in life, I kept developing this habit until one day that compendium of randomly picked images in my mind finally allowed me to create a signature style, adopting a visual position closer to lowbrow or to pop surrealism. Illustrations, tattoos, comic books and concepts such as retro, publicity and kitsch are always part of my work. Surrounding the idea of home life and the everyday, I mix images as if it was a puzzle to create my own scenery of soft and evoking fantasy.”

Urban project / Painting in space. Materials: Methacrylate, acetates, supports and translucent paint for crystal. Location: Pontevedra City center, Spain.
2010 EVASION PROJECT INSTALLATION
Intervention in a natural space. Materials: Acrylic paint, gold leaf, silver paper, colored fabrics. Location: Beach and forest of Mogor, MarĂn, Spain.
2010 NEW SPACES INATALLATION
Artistic proposal linked to the city urban space. The idea of these interventions arises from the useless occupation of a useful space, that is to say, perishable works that do not keep any apparent function or simply have become obsolete so they do not make sense in the place that occupy but they still belong to the urban furniture and Steal a usable space. The issue that is treated in this artistic proposal is to transform these spaces from the same furniture that will serve as a support, so the stolen space takes on a meaning by attracting the viewerâ€™s gaze and challenging the inventiveness of the creator. The urban furniture I am referring to occupies a large fan; Broken pipes, poorly placed pivots, accumulated garbage, cardboard boxes, fountains that do not work, window frames, obsolete objects, false walls ..., that is, all the furniture that I find in the city and means a Urban stumbling.
What I intend to do with this is to use it as a base or support to create a scenery with recycled objects, either minimalist or recharged according to the space occupied by the object and convert it into an artistic object either through the color, shape or accumulation of things. To create the work I take into account the functions and formal characteristics of the object and from this analysis I create new spaces where the object is transformed and acquires another aesthetic and functionality.
2010 DESFUNCTION PHOTOGRAPHY
It is assumed that objects have to serve something in direct relation to our needs, a chair is used to sit, a ladder to reach a certain height and a bottle to contain liquids. Similarly, to sit, you do not need a chair. One can sit on a stone or simply on the floor This is how each of the exhibits evoke common spaces of a dwelling and invite us to reflect on the relationships that each one builds with his environment, and the role of each object in space.

2011 CYCLE SPACES PHOTOGRAPHY
Selected artwork for BE BERLIN
It reflects the real city typology where the possibility of infinite diversity of environments as well as the drift of its inhabitants and the frequency of their chance encounters is totally ruled out, so much so that we do not see confined a minimum space, that in some Cases called the isolation modules where the individual is deprived of freedom and takes over helplessly being swallowed up among the mass, is surrounded by the multitude of people but there is an imperious solitude in it. We travel from house to house for brief periods of time in which we try to establish a relationship with the place, as a way of fixing our own identity. Rather it is a form of impersonation. Because the protagonist is incapable of creating a real bond with both spaces and people, the simulacrum is the unique way that it occurs to him to reconnect with himself.
The modern city created a new perception form, and therefore of representation, a new sensibility and aesthetic practice. This urban aesthetic based on the appreciation of the ephemeral is what Baudelaire would define as modernity: â€œModernism is the transitory, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art, whose other half is the eternal and the immutable ...â€? .

Objectproject 2010. Video installation exposed in SALA X, Universidad BB AA de Vigo This video installation consists of three short films by means of the assembly of images that have as a common theme the relationship of dependence that is formed between the subject and the object. It represents any useless and harmless object that is kept in a house for no apparent reason during an indefinite time, without any purpose, so they rebel against their owner in order to reach a relationship of mutual dependence.

Architectural maps / projects: -size: A2 - from objects found, in this case, architectural maps of 70â€™s , I adapt the work to the new support, in this way a dialogue is created between the
theme, material and support, I also mix the collage with the illustration, fitting the external element and pictorizing it so that itâ€™s inserted in the drawing. A habitable space is generated, starting from the first technical lines creating daily scenes surrounding the idea of home.

2014 PACKED ROUTINES PAINTING
Throughout our history the consumption in the life of the man was changing and acquired a new meaning. In principle man sought food only to meet his biological needs, then this search was related to elements such as luxury, religion, status and pleasure of the ritual itself. The current pace of life demands simpler foods. The changes in consumption practices are manifestations of transformation in family life and society in general, among them: the increase in consumption outside the home, concern for food safety and the preference for packaged products and Easy preparation; All of which meet the current need for speed and respond to the demand for impersonal relationships as a consequence of todayâ€™s urban culture. The desritualization of consumption habits and the void of human communication and exchange, transform routines into mere replenishment operations. Mixed media on canvas, 40x60 cm
We left it for dessert
The mobility provided by means of transportation, combined with the new technologies of food preservation and other products of daily use, revolutionize daily life and consequently our cultural identity, giving rise to modern society where almost 100% Of the products we consume are plastified and packaged. Progressively this prevents us from visualizing the raw product, sometimes it happens that the origin of the product is related to the packaging in which it is presented, consequently the milk does not come from a brick but a cow, the tunas are not caught in Cans, even swim ...
And how can we introduce the material we use and discard in our daily lives, how to make a world that no one pays attention to art object or useful? Creating a market of routines, the wrappers that supply all our lives are integrated into our day to day based on metaphoric images that link the two worlds. An implicit declaration of respect for belonging to a world cultural supermarket.

2016 MURAL 6 SECONDS OF DARKNESS PAINTING
In this mural the main theme is a lighthouse lit framed in a scrambled sea that covers an area of 420 square meters. The style is closer to naive and pop art, a line that is imposed throughout his extensive work as an artist, using intense and pure colors that stand out on the facade. The work gives rise to play with various concepts, there is romanticism in the very idea of the lighthouse, the sea, the storm. An image that envelops you, baffles you but at the same time returns you home. Predominates the freshness, the color and invites you to the reflection. As the title of the play “6 seconds of darkness” indicates, reflective title inspired by a song by Jorge Drexler, “12 seconds of darkness” that is the time that it takes to turn the light beam of the lighthouse of Polonio, in Uruguay, a place where there is no electricity and only lights the headlight every 12 “, Drexler wrote his song there inspired by what lies in the dark, it is not light that matters in truth but the seconds of darkness, a precious Metaphor of the life of what hurts us and what lights us, in this case the 6 seconds are what takes the pulse of light in the lighthouse of Estepona.

The project explores the causes of drought and water pollution. The spectator will see how many of our daily bad pracces inluence the environment and favor this problem. We are part of this cycle of destruction thanks to our excessive consumption not only of water but also of thousands of products such as clothing, plastic, food ... whose waste is to see the sea and the rivers during the whole process of manufacture and consumption . This favors the global warming that is leading to the lack of water and at the same time the water that we have is seriously contaminated.
