Maria Montiel Studio
Maria Montiel is from Venezuela and arrived in Spain in 2007 to study Textile Design. For her, it was the best way to mix what she loves the most: illustration and graphic design. She describes herself as “an artist with a tropical soul in a Mediterranean land”.
Maria takes inspiration from her memories, her Dad’s orchid garden, and her travels. The jungle of Latin America with its vivid colors and rich textures blooms in her organic and colorful illustrations. Maria mainly uses watercolor to create imaginative worlds full of warmth and magic, aimed at infecting everyone with joy.
When living in Venezuela, Maria fell in love with the “Cayena blanca”-flower (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) on an excursion with friends. She therefore started to brand herself under that name to create products with her prints.
In 2018, she was invited to Brooklyn by Ag Gallery to showcase her work in a solo exhibition.
