We at Brit Es have been following the progress of Ernesto Cánovas for some time, in fact we consider him like our amulet-artist. He was one of the first people we interviewed and so we’ve had a strong connection with him from the very beginning. His extensive body of work spans the figurative and the abstract in a career that began in London in 2009. He studied Fine Art at the Slade School of Art, and took some postgraduate courses in Edinburgh.
Stubborn, passionate, vulnerable and imaginative. This is how Montse Gallego describes herself. The Spanish artist, based in London for twelve years, has just celebrated the first anniversary of her personal project: Hundred Years Gallery, a cosy cultural and exhibition space located in the heart of Shoreditch. And, although she confesses she had never thought about having her own gallery, she values the experience very positively.
“I find it difficult when people ask me what I do, I feel a little guilty telling them I’m an artist, as though it isn’t really work … perhaps it’s because I enjoy it so much. .”
