Artist profile

Elisenda Vila

Primary fields


I grew up in a little village surrounded by natural landscapes where I started to be curious about the nature and the beauty surrounding me.
When I was 17 I took part in my first collective exhibition in Barcelona. At 19 I moved to Barcelona where I became a Fine Arts Graduate for the University of Barcelona.
After some years dedicated to Archaeology and Museology, I started teaching art and exhibiting around Catalonia.
In 2011, I moved to London where I developed my personal style, immersed in a vibrant atmosphere of culture, meeting actors, artists and musicians who inspired me. There I was finalist at the ArtGemini Prize 2013 and at the 1st Visual Arts Awards at the Embassy of Brazil 2015.
In November 2016 I moved back to Barcelona, due to my mother being diagnses with an agressive cancer. Here, I continue my artistic career with frequent visits to London.
