Becky Jaraiz is a Spanish illustrator and painter graduated in Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. She completed her last years of education in Münster, right before moving to Berlin. There she starting exhibiting solo at different art centers investigating topics about identity and the constant swing of being migrant and woman. From this intersection emerged a work that questions structural violence, power schemes and the coexistence of contradictions. For this narrative she focuses on watercolor, acrylic, oil, charcoal and engraving. Overlays and impulsive paintbrushes, that blend both abstraction and figuration, belong to her artistic identity.
In 2019 she illustrated for documentaries such as "Ausencias" by Alicia Elero or "What the hell is going on? // ¿Qué co#o está pasando?" by Marta Jaenes and Rosa Márquez. She also collaborated with cultural projects and curated collective exhibitions such as "Boys will be boys", which was embraced in several galleries and art centers in Germany or "A B S T A N D", what motivated her to initiate the collective Pussart.
