Antonia Penia is an award winning visual artist who specializes in photography, video, and performance art. She was born in Galicia, Spain, and has been residing in London, UK, since 2010. Her work delves into the exploration of identity, gender, and social and cultural status by creating intimate, sensual, and provocative images that insinuate her self-image.
Antonia's work has been shaped by her experiences with longing, loss, mental health, censorship, and her connection to the natural and spiritual world. Her art challenges the history of patriarchy and the abuse of power through gender, and she believes in equality and fights for her rights. Her radical, intense, passionate, and energetic personality fuels her creative vision and expression.
Antonia holds two MA's in Arts from UAL, London (2023) and EFTI, Madrid (2003). She believes that the foundation of life is learning, and learning is a living experience.
