Andrea Sotelo was born in Mexico City in 1992. She grew up in a house with designer parents, so she was exposed to the creative environment from an early age. She studied Graphic Design at the Universidad Iberoamericana (2012-2017) where she specialized in Animation.
In 2017 she began her practice as an artist as an experimental animator, being selected at festivals in CDMX and New York.
From 2017 to 2020 she lived in Madrid, where she entered to Master Lav, Audiovisual Laboratory for Contemporary Creation and Practice, in 2019, a postgraduate course dedicated to artistic practice and knowledge of
experimental cinema. In this context, she made pieces for collective exhibitions that took place in Mexico and Spain.
She currently lives and works between CDMX and Madrid, where he continues to develop her work in painting, sculpture and video.
Her art exploration is nourished by autobiographical elements such as her family, her childhood and the house in which she grew up. Her pictorial practice consists of a reflective look directed towards her own anatomy with the aim of vindicating the images that surround the female body, in order to create new abstract images that reminds us of the feminine and sensitive.
The series of paintings she has been working over the last year, are based in poems/descriptions send by her close friends. Each poem describes the unique relationship between each friend and their own body and intimacy. The resulting images are the mix between each woman’s reflection and the artist perception. Each piece is named after the friend.
