ABOUT ME

Spanish artist and illustrator´s Paula Sanz Caballero, Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of Valencia (Spain) and a Master degree in Graphic Design in San Pablo CEU, Valencia (Spain),  started out her career as a painter, participating in gallery shows on national level. In the late 90´s she started experimenting with textiles and embroidery, which eventually replaced paint as the chosen medium for her visual narratives.

Always true to her figurative, detail-oriented style, Sanz Caballero´s images of high-society figures in elegant, sophisticated surroundings are loaded with irony, dark humor and unsettling details have been published by a list of clients that includes fashion magazines, publishing companies, shopping centers and other international firms

Her Illustrations have been used in advertising and publishing campaigns across the globe for prestigious firms such as Neiman Marcus, Chie Mihara or Harper Collins, and her work also appears regularly in international fashion and design magazines like Vogue, WWD and The New Yorker.

But her work as an illustrator has by no means eclipsed her career as an artist: on the contrary, she sees the two aspects as complementary, and often exhibits her original pieces in art galleries in Europe and the United States.
