Cinta Vidal Agulló is an artist from Barcelona, Spain. She creates her devoid of gravity worlds using acrylic paints on wooden panels. Cinta lives in Cardedeu, a small town near Barcelona. Her studio is located directly above a toy store owned by her family.
Cinta studied to be an illustrator, and for 16 years toiled in the theater workshop, learning the intricacies of staging. She is now engaged in staging the scenery for opera performances, illustration, painting murals and portraits.
Cinta shares in an interview with Hi-Fructose:
With these un-gravity constructions, I want to show that we live in one world, but we live in it in very different ways – playing with everyday objects and spaces, placed in impossible ways to express that many times, the inner dimension of each one of us does not match the mental structures of those around us. The architectural spaces and day-to-day objects are part of a metaphor of how difficult it is to fit everything that shapes our daily space: our relationships, work, ambitions, and dreams.
Vidal refers to the paintings as “un-gravity constructions” and says that each piece examines how a person’s internal perspective of life may not match up with the reality around them.
The intersecting planes on many of her paintings are somewhat reminiscent of drawings by M.C. Escher, where every angle and available surface is inhabited by colorful characters going about their daily lives.
