ANA ISABEL CONDE
WHO AM I? WHY ART?
You can call me Anais! Since I was a child, I always had the desire to discover unfamiliar places and by doing so, learn something about myself. I had a happy childhood, followed by more introverted and studious teenage years.
I did not know what exactly to do, but I wanted to be able to sustain myself economically. This led me to study business and economics at the University of Deusto, in Bilbao, Spain. I achieved a Master’s degree equivalent and was lucky enough to gain a scholarship at the University of Edinburgh, where I experienced some of the most beautiful and exciting moments in my life up until that point.
I interacted with individuals who taught me about art, music, and urban architecture. I was thereby exposed to an amazing world of culture that I had never seen before. I had the opportunity to visit museums and found all those painted faces, landscapes, and incredible images intriguing. They all formed a story and had the ability to transport me to another world. I could say that it was there when I fell in love with art, which has become a lifelong appreciation. Nevertheless, it took me many years before I really decided to start working in this field. Of course during those years there are other stories and experiences that have coalesced to make me the person I am today.
WHAT CAN I OFFER?
In the last few years, I have met many artists from multiple disciplines but mainly those whose primary media is paint and plastic. By clicking the ARTCLUB link, you can find a list of some of the artists I am currently working with as well as collaborating on various projects. If you are interested in working together, please feel free to view the projects and ask any questions you may have.
I also maintain relationships with many artists who are able to commission paintings of all sizes, murals on the facades of buildings, beautiful sculptures for buildings, public places, and institutions. Additionally, I work with art collectors, interior designers, real estate agents, developers of new condominiums, luxury concierge services, and museums. Relationships and connection are the key to the many successful projects with which I have been involved.
