MAITE CASCON

My practice is representational and symbolic. In my working process, drawing and printmaking allow me to reconstruct reality not only by observing it but also by playing with it, creating narrative images through metaphors. I have been developing images which depict the wild side within us. The topics are based on the body and death, sexuality and different social issues, such as gender, disengagement from nature and the increase of human individualism. Psychology and folktales are important references for my work. Being part of our early education, the stereotypes of the old tales remain in our unconscious affecting our behavior nowadays.


I studied Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid being granted with a bursary to undertake the course Cátedra Francisco de Goya with Antonio López García. In 2017 I graduated with an MA in Print from the Royal College of Art and won the SWA Fine Art Young Artists Award at Mall Galleries, I was selected that year in the Young Contemporary Talent Purchase Prize of the Ingram Collection and won the Gwen May RE Graduate Award from the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. My work has been seen in Spain, last time in Casa de Velazquez; and most recently in the UK, some of the latest with Bankside Gallery, Safehouse 1 with Maverick Projects, The Cello Factory, in the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair, and the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy.
