Alba Escayo is a critically acclaimed contemporary artist based in Marid whose expansive and compelling paintings and interdisciplinary works have garnered her international recognition (albaescayo.com).

Vibrant, masterful, and implicitly expressionistic, her paintings converge artistic ingenuity with new media principles in practice which is entirely contemporary. With reference to natural elements, oceanic-landscapes, and travel iconography, Escayo’s painterly collage work is a reinterpretation of the artist's international travels— acting as both a signifier for contemporary re-engagement, and preservation of, the tradition of exploration place, afar and familiar.

Informed and inspired by the collective multi-culturalism observed during her travels, Escayo employs a similar hybridization of cultural and natural influence in her work, engaging an immersion of icons, colors, and environmental influence in her paintings.

In this talk, she will share about her world, her inspiration - finding beauty in simplicity, and creating in the flow.

For the second part of the talk, she and composer-pianist / improvising musician Tze Toh will share about their ongoing live painting and improvised music collaboration, and do a short live performance – a preview of their upcoming concert Escayo x Toh on the 20th September, CET 7pm ( Protected content ), which is part of the Dreams / Suenos / 梦International collaborative concerts series created by Tze Toh.
