Yaiza Gallego Lirola graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Granada, lives and works currently in Antwerp, Belgium.
Her works shows us different styles, techniques and themes, given the constant research in different areas of art. But projects often play with topics such as irony, humor, eroticism and sexuality, taboos in society or spirituality, combined with organic shapes, geometry, animals, puns…
For her it is important to transmit or get’ somehow the viewer, namely,   get their attention or a reaction, either positive or negative. Therefore behind her works it is usually a big background or previous study, which results in a work full of inner meaning, even if you with a simple look, can’t see it.
She enjoy works that require precision and careful preparation. Therefore recently she is immersed in one of her other passions, tattoos.

 ” The idea of someone ‘puting in your hands a piece of his body’ for get a design of you, that it will be mainly permanent and it will create a memory and a bond with that person during the process… That ‘thing’ makes me go into such a state of intensity and concentration that it makes me feel soo great… It just fascinates me! ”
