Susanna Inglada (b. 1983) is a Spanish visual artist. She lives and works in The Netherlands and specialized in drawing and painting. She got her Bachelor in Fine Arts in Barcelona, followed by a Master in Fine Arts in The Netherlands in 2013. Ever since, she has done residencies in Leipzig (Germany) and Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and her work has been shown in exhibitions in Spain, The Netherlands, Germany and Mexico, including at Kunsthal Rotterdam and Drawing Center Diepenheim. At 18th Street Arts Center, she will continue work on a project that she started in Mexico City called La Embajada. This project will be follow by a residency in HISK (Belgium) for a period of two years.
Born and raised in Catalonia, Susanna is inspired by Spanish culture, literature, history and politics. Susanna’s work consists of installations, in which she creates dark scenes, using characters and symbols in collage techniques. She studied theater for two years in Barcelona, something that really influenced her present work, where fictional characters act as personages in her ‘plays’. This residency has been made possible with support of Mondriaan Fonds.
