Born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Mersuka draws much of her inspiration from country living and her various observations from her extensive travels. The large-scale collages Mersuka creates use densely patterned fabrics and papers sourced from couture artisans, all of which come together beautifully through the elegant gestural lines that she would draw so effectively and masterfully using pigments and paints. The colors, shapes and patterns that Mersuka finds in her surroundings guide her to create artworks with a wide range of subjects and techniques which accentuate the nature of her innovative mind and fearless spirit. It is as if we are looking through a kaleidoscopic view of an innocent child, full of magical moments and vibrant emotions.
Currently based in Bali, Mersuka’s works are recognized globally, having been featured in numerous international art fairs. The artist is also represented by galleries in New York and London.
