Btoy lives and works in Barcelona

Btoy's work is characterized by intertextuality; Heavy load nostalgic portraits (such as past models of 20's and 50's Hollywood like Judy Garland playing Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz or Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra) swayed by forceful brushstrokes and color. Pallets magenta and dark red challenge to those described in black and white photographs. Btoy presented in her works the precepts of postmodernism, eclectic, ephemeral, the result of the loss of social cohesion. Practicing stencil art since 2001 and thus settled her position in the international scene, Btoy has been invited by Banksy in the Cans Festival in 2008, along with fifty of the best stencil artists in the world. French people had also opportunity to discover Btoy's work at the international festival of graffiti Kosmopolite in Bagnolet in June 2008.

When Btoy turned 26, her mother died and she started to paint.

Before that Btoy was studying law for four years and after one year she thought, “This is not my career. I think I’ve made a big mistake.”  Btoy then started to study photography in a professional school for three years. Photography has become the basis of her painting.

At Firts Btoy was using Photoshop, and then drew the image, and then used stencils and paint. Now Btoy is using Photoshop less because she understands the difference between light and shadows more easily.

"In 2002 there were no laws against graffiti in Barcelona. We could paint with many people in a big place in the centre of the city and the cops would just say, “Hello, hello.” But laws against graffiti started in Barcelona in 2005. I started using posters because the poster is very easy and fast. It only takes one minute to put up a poster."

In the future, Btoy hopes to do more big murals, work in the studio for shows, continue to teach  and try to evolve in her work.
