Rosa Fuentes is a Spanish artist whose work has focused on painting, fresco, illustration and sculpture. Her approach comes from the abstract, through the figurative, with geometric figures and organic patterns that use soft earthy colours to create a poetic world of her own that appeals to the viewer´s sensitivity while retaining a strong sense of composition. She draws her inspiration from Chinese and Arabic tradition filtered through her European perspective.

She studied Chinese calligraphy and art in the University of Fine Arts of Hangzhou in the 1990s, worked with traditional artists in Tangier as a scholarship recipient, and is a known fresco artist having studied and worked in Florence under a Fletcher fellowship; Rosa took her fine arts degree in Barcelona and worked in Paris.

She has had extensive exhibitions both solo and group throughout France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and China. She has designed awards for ASCER, for ICMP and for the European Commission.
