Ima Montoya has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country. She has lived and worked in Bilbao, Madrid, London, Tokyo, Moscow, Budapest and is currently living in Mexico City.
Her paintings are full of references to contemporary life and her desire to create an open dialogue with the viewer. This allows for an open interpretation, facilitating a sense of complicity and empathy.
Montoya is moved by the journey itself and not the destination.
