Raquel Blazquez is a self-taught figurative painter and artist exploring the human subconscious, emotions, trauma, and connections.
Her paintings are a direct expression of her inner world, and through them, she processes her own emotions and trauma. Her mission is to raise conversations about the unspoken topics of mental health, inviting us to accept our full range of emotions as they are.
Her last collection ‘Stories from the past’ explores Raquel’s own childhood trauma and conditioning, and the effect the past has in our beliefs and emotions in the present. The piece ‘Crumbling walls’ examined how rejection from our peers and family while growing up, causes defense mechanisms to arise, creates a wall, the objective of which is to protect us. But with time, this wall, this false persona, ends being restrictive. In order to heal, we need to reconnect with who we trully are, and there’s a need to overcome this fear of rejection. On another hand, the piece ‘Silenced’ explores the very prevalent feeling of being unable to express fully, to say no, particularly in women, and how this can led to sexual trauma.
Her process starts with abstract colourful backgrounds created through intuitive play, using mainly acrylic paint and spray paint. Portraits are over-imposed using oil paint. Colour is used as a carrier of emotions and loose brushstrokes as a representation of movement and continuous change within the individual and as a collective.
Working in a loose style Cordelia paints an interesting range of subjects inspired by nature, fauna and wildlife. A new collection of work will be on display of quirky greenhouses and orangeries with a contemporary twist as well as some still life paintings. Cordelia will be selling original art works as well as affordable limited edition prints.
For my artwork I use a variety of mediums including acrylic markers, spraypaints, acrylic paint, fineliners and more. I specialise in lettering however also paint a wide range or styles including murals, characters and logos.
most of my pieces are painted on A3 canvas board or heavyweight paper. I also love to paint/draw on a variety of maps of different sizes, this is influenced from the graffiti and hip hop culture.
I have been drawing and sketching since I can remember and I found my true passion of graffiti and street art 4 years ago and work on this the majority of my spare time.
I love to make canvases of peoples names or chosen words with or without characters or cartoons to learn more about letter structure, 3d, colour and more.
some of my murals can be found on the trail including the gents hairdressers and farrows fish and chip shop both on wells road.
I am currently available and open to commissions wether it be a canvas, map, mural or even sketches. Feel free to drop me a message or reach out for a free quote and chat!
thanks and I look forward to seeing you on the trail!
Paintings with a powerful sense of colour bringing together earth and darkly atmospheric combinations. Most are concerned with capturing the mystery and fragility of the natural world. I work in acrylic on canvas and oil on canvas, print and draw. All work will be original and some may even be wet!
