About the Work
Delve into the evocative world of Bel Fullana, a Mallorcan-born artist whose surroundings have left an indelible mark on her artistry. Hailing from a background steeped in rich culture and the ever-changing landscape of tourists, Fullana's artworks capture the essence of Mallorca's vibrant environment.
Bel Fullana, a prodigious talent who emerged from Mallorca and graduated from Sant Jordi University of Barcelona, shares, "Cry Baby Bae is a painting I crafted in 2022 for David Zwirner's platform during my solo exhibition 'PutiPandi' at Freight + Volume Gallery in NY. The original artwork, an eclectic mix of oil, acrylic, and spray painting, stands at 47 x 39 inches. In crafting this print edition, I have reimagined the original by digitally modifying intricate details, resulting in varied versions of the same painting." Fullana's evolution over the past decade has been nothing short of remarkable. Moving from subdued hues to arresting colors like gum pink, her work dances between thick impasto techniques and ethereal spray paint washes. This dichotomy pulls the viewer into a space of indeterminacy, juxtaposing mature narratives with naive, childlike depictions. Painting directly onto the canvas, Fullana's artistry thrives on improvisation, but she remains deeply attuned to the final presentation. Internationally recognized, her art has adorned walls from Seoul and Taiwan to New York, Los Angeles, Denmark, and Germany. Notably, in 2017, Fullana's artistic prowess was celebrated with the prestigious Prize Ciutat de Palma of Visual Arts. Fullana's narrative is rich – her paintings echo with voices of liberated girls, mischievous hooligans, and hedonist epicureans. These characters often serve as Fullana's alter-egos, from pleasure seekers to empowered cyborgs. Through a raw, unfiltered style, she highlights the dichotomy of innocent hues and a powerful undercurrent. Her women are fierce, self-assured, and in command of both their sexuality and societal space.
Bel Fullana, born in Mallorca, Spain in 1985, is a trailblazing artist whose oeuvre is deeply influenced by her Mediterranean roots. Her transformative journey, from the historic mansion of Casal Solleric in Palma de Mallorca to the vibrant galleries of New York's Freight + Volume, captures her essence of perpetual evolution. With significant solo exhibitions including "Puti Pandi" (2022) at Freight + Volume, "Miau Planet" (2021) at Galeria Fran Reus, and "Foxy Gangstas by Bel Fullana" (2021) at ALLOUCHE BENIAS, Fullana has left her mark on both sides of the Atlantic. Her collaborative spirit has been showcased in notable group exhibitions like "PUNGENT DYSTOPIA" at Freight + Volume (2020) and "BADASS" at Dopeness Art Lab (2021). An artist of intuition, Fullana predominantly paints directly onto her canvas, blending improvisation with a meticulous concern for the final outcome. Her accolades include the esteemed Prize Ciutat de Palma of Visual Arts in 2017. Through her vivid compositions, Fullana offers a juxtaposition of liberated women - from hedonist epicureans to militant cyborgs - underscoring their agency in both sexuality and societal roles.
