Through Photography as main means of expression, Isa Sanz conveys the emotion and depth of the female universe in a way barely known until now: she transcends a difficult barrier to provide both technique and study with the concept and the required magic to finally reach Art.

 

Qualified in Photography & Media Arts, University for the Creative Arts in England (2005/2007); Photography Master, EFTI, Madrid (2003-2004); Professional Photography Course, EFTI, Madrid (2002-2003); Graphic Design, ESEP Valladolid (1992-1994).

 

It is worth mentioning the selection of her photograph “The Rib of Discord" at the competition Generation, Awards and Grants Caja Madrid 2005 , and her participation in various exhibitions since 2004.

 

With photography and video, she develops her searching experimenting within the world of performance art, and has participated with two performance pieces in the International Festival of Theatre and Street Arts 2010, Valladolid, Spain.

 

She is a poetic and provocative artist who makes of her vital experience a gift for anyone who looks into to her work.
