María Dalli is a line artist based in Valencia, Spain. Her art pieces are based on improvised lines that form abstract figures and deconstructed faces. Her work exhibits a primary interest in simplicity and in the 'less is more' principle to express ideas and emotions around the universal definition of the human being, equality, the beauty of asymmetry, vulnerability or human suffering. Her work includes both one line drawings and acrylic paintings as well as digital pieces.
What does art mean to you?
For me, art is a way to express myself creatively. It allows me to stop for a while from the speed of the nowadays life, to reflect on my emotions and ideas, to focus on what I want to create next, to entertain myself. Art is a good therapy for this, similar to meditation or conscious breathing. But art is also very communicative, it is about sharing what you do and how you feel with others. There is a lot of excitement in creating something and in sharing it with other people. In this way, art is very powerful because it has the ability to make people feel something. If my works can transmit something, if people’s attention is caught in a particular way, then that’s the biggest achievement for me.
