Name: Blanca Azcárraga
Type of art: Neon lights
It is impossible to separate Blanca Azcarraga’s life experiences from her artwork. From her childhood in Madrid and the Andalusian countryside, to her current life in Los Angeles, where she discovered new artistic mediums, Blanca has not forgotten from her Spanish heritage or her academic training. Her work, simple and lively, reflects her understanding of life, her passion for nature and beauty without pretense.
She specializes in custom-created, personalized pieces that include illustrations, graphic design and her most recent and now preferred artistic medium, neon tubes. She seeks to create simple but lively works that explore her love of light, shape and color.
“I get inspiration from everything that surrounds me but especially from nature, memories and popular culture, both spanish and abroad. I reduce what I see to its basic shape and hope to bring it to life with light and color”
Born sixth in a family of seven, Azcarraga was raised in Madrid where she studied audiovisuals at the University of San Pablo (CEU). In 2008 she moved to Napa Valley where she worked as a marketing associate for Elhers Estate winery before moving to L.A. to study graphic design at UCLA.
