Paula Anta is an artist with a deep sensitivity that she usually expresses through photography; landscape photographs in which she intervenes, creating a link between the natural and the artificial, a very subtle alteration of the landscape that starts with the natural materials: stone, sand, water, dust, natural pigments or in some cases elements such as plastic, PVC, aerosols that contrast with the landscape or with an increasingly denaturalised nature.

Paula Anta (Madrid 1977) is a Doctor in Fine Art from the Complutense University of Madrid, Paula Anta also holds professional piano qualifications.
