Lourdes Salcedo Tavira is a Spanish artist, from Madrid, who married a Taiwanese and permanently resides in Taiwan. Tavira’s predisposition to the arts showed early on through a childhood of musical inclination, leading her to receive a Diploma in Music from the University of Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain.
After finishing University, Tavira left Spain to work in many different countries and enter into a new career path as a Technology Analyst. After many years in this field, she became an expert in Emergent Technologies and moved to Taiwan to work for the best incubator in the World, ITRI.
However, Tavira’s passion for art since she was a little girl never abandon her, so after many years in the technology field she finally decided to walk out to become a professional artist. Tavira’s works has been exhibited in several Art Fairs and exhibitions in London, Vancouver, Spain and Taiwan, and some years ago had a very successful solo exhibition at MOCA Studio in Taipei.
As a female artist with an outstanding sense of color and sensitivity, Tavira naturally identifies with the complexity of our society using the distortion of reality and abstraction to express her own moods and feelings, through her unique style of painting. She also finds the inclusion of media and installation very appealing and experimental inciting the audience’s participation and contemplation, in order to capture the essence of her artistic message.
